Live your 'leave life' large with $100 Accor bonus

The Tourism Minister is urging Australians to take their annual leave and the Prime Minister, Kevin Rudd, is handing out $900 to many people to pay for it. Now Accor, the largest hotel operator in Australia has come up with the perfect way to spend your stimulus cheque and get $100 extra that can be used to take a holiday – or several - at the destination of your choice any time over the next 12 months.

When you purchase a $900 Accor Gift Card* and use the promotional code "THANKSKEV" at the time of purchase, Accor will give you an extra $100 on your card as a further stimulus.

"There has never been a better time to travel within Australia, with many hotels dropping their rates to levels not seen in years, so an Accor Gift Card is the perfect way to use your stimulus cheque, support the tourism industry, improve your work-life balance and instantly add $100 extra to your holiday budget," says Claire Wearne, Accor Director of Sales and Marketing. "You can then use the card for a few different escapes through the year whenever you need a break, or splurge on one big holiday by using it all at once.

"This is an easy way to turn Kevin Rudd's $900 gift into $1000 and use it to boost the Australian economy and your own health and well-being at the same time."

Accor Gift Cards are warmly welcomed at more than 135 hotels, resorts and apartments throughout Australia, New Zealand and Fiji and can be used towards accommodation plus in-house food and beverage charges until the value of the card runs out.

Accor boasts an extensive network of hotels and resorts, from three-star value to five-star luxury in the country's most sought-after locations under its Sofitel, Pullman, MGallery, Grand Mercure, Novotel, Mercure, All Seasons and Ibis brands. The best publicly available rate is always offered to card-holders, ensuring great value, and the card is valid for a full year.

To order your Accor Gift Card go to or call (02) 9280 9764.

* Offer is valid until 30th June for individual Gift Card purchases only. Gift Card credit can be redeemed against all publicly available rates. Visit for further details.
