The card will be used for all purchases wherein Visa is accepted. The ALL Visa card provides loyalty points and member perks in key markets across the world, which enables guests to accumulate points on making purchases and staying at an Accor property.
The new launch shall provide unparalleled advantages to members of Accor. It is set to boost the success of the ALL loyalty program, increase its member base, enhance further engagement and cater to all the members via providing incentives.
As far as Visa is concerned, the partnership shall boost its global network and digital capabilities. The partnership is intended to render attractive loyalty and payment products, which will be at the leading edge of the hospitality market.
