AccorHotels, the chain that encompasses Sofitel, Pullman, Mercure and Ibis hotels have launched a very decent looking summer sale which I wanted to make sure we got to before it expires at the end of this week. Here are the headline figures:

For bookings made before 9th June 2017, customers will receive a guaranteed 30% off at more than 2,500 hotels worldwide as well as complimentary breakfast.

A full list of participating hotels worldwide can be found here

I spotted the likes of the Sofitel London Heathrow and the Pullman London St Pancras on there which is interesting as these can be fairly expensive properties to book. A 30% discount can make for some very good savings indeed.

Although for the most part, the offer runs through the summer period until September, hotels in the UK can be booked all the way through February 2018. Even if you have no immediate hotel requirements it is worthwhile having a look to see if you can pick up a good deal for stays later in the year.


How to book

You must book via the AccorHotels website here

Verdict

It is always welcome to see hotel chains running sales that cover peak periods like the summer holidays. Often cash prices for rooms can skyrocket, especially within the last couple of months before travel. The addition of free breakfast is also a nice perk as it means you don’t have to factor in that a more expensive rate may actually work out cheaper once you factor in breakfast, as can sometimes be the case with sale prices.
