​AccorHotels.com launches its new Flight + Hotel reservation offer 

​AccorHotels.com, which, since June 2015, also distributes independent hotels on its platform, has taken the personalization of services offered to travelers to a new level with the launch of its Flight + Hotel reservation offer.

Starting on May 15th, 2017, AccorHotels.com is now offering French Internet users the chance to benefit from Flight and Hotel package, now available from a permanent catalogue of 180 hotels and 30 destinations around the world, from Paris to Buenos Aires, passing through Dubai, Rio de Janeiro, Bangkok, New York, etc.

Built on a pre-packaged model, the offer enables AccorHotels.com to position itself as a travel advisor, offering travelers customized packages at attractive rates, in order to best fulfill their expectations. In an effort to continue providing unique rewards and enhanced experiences to its loyal customers, AccorHotels will exclusively offer members of its loyalty program, Le Club AccorHotels, the opportunity to earn points on hotel nights reserved as part of the packages. Over time, the entire package will be eligible for Le Club AccorHotels points. 

Available via a dedicated section accessible from the AccorHotels.com homepage, this new offer emerged from the collaboration between AccorHotels.com and MisterFly, a travel agency specialized in the sale of discount air tickets, which manages the flight catalogue, assists AccorHotels.com in the creation of its packages, and provides customer services.

This new offer complements tools that have been recently created  on AccorHotels.com and in the mobile app to aid customers in their journey, including the AccorHotels Magazine which, through more than 2,000 articles, immerses readers in the heart of the destinations offered by the Group; creation of 80 interactive city guides which list a multitude of unmissable activities for travelers to enjoy during their stay; and MoodMatch, the first experience-based hotel search engine launched in partnership with Travelsify.

“By amplifying our range of services around the booking phase of their trip, the new Flight + Hotel package enhances our portfolio of services already offered to travelers by AccorHotels.com. As such, it also forms part of our ongoing digital transformation strategy, with our key priority focused on transforming AccorHotels.com into a comprehensive and essential travel companion and the first point of contact between travelers and the AccorHotels network. Today, AccorHotels.com is a one-stop shop where travelers have access to unique services that always combine excellence and user friendliness at every stage of their stay,” said Romain Roulleau, Senior Vice President, E-Commerce and Digital Services, AccorHotels.
