My wife got $400 worth of Accor Hotels gift cards for her birthday, last year.
Upon trying to use them, we found we could ONLY use them:
1) At these properties only and NO other Accor property (for example, can't use it at Accor Budget):
2) Have to use the standard, vey expensive Accor rate with no discounts;
3) Have to RING the property direct, by phone, between 9am and 5pm, and find someone who knows how to process these cards; and then add a Credit card to book the property.
We found an IDENTICAL Sebel apartment on Booking.com for $700 less, even with using these gift cards! On AirBNB, the same identical property was $800 less!
WHAT A RIP OFF!!!
Do not buy any Accor Hotel gift cards, they are less than useless and you can get cheaper without it.
