Accor teams up with Axa for guest medical support

Hotels
WORLD Hotel group Accor is partnering with Axa to provide medical support for guests of the hotel chain.

In July, Accor’s guests we be able to benefit from free access to medical teleconsultations. They will also be given access to Axa’s extensive medical networks of tens of thousands of medical professionals. This will allow Accor to make the most relevant referrals for their guests (e.g according to language, specialism, etc.) in the 110 destinations where it operates.

“The distinctive partnership with Axa which we have been working on for several months makes even more sense in today’s context. In an increasingly complex environment, our 300.000 team members on the ground will be able to assist our guests and ensure their safety during their stays, turning our hotels into shelters. This initiative, combined with our AllSafe enhanced hygiene protocols, will be key for guests to rediscover their love of travel in Accor’s 5,000 properties around the world,” insists Sébastien Bazin, the chairman and CEO of Accor.
