ALL – Accor Live Limitless Gold Status for a Single Registered Accor Share

Sofitel Budapest Welcome Gift

To get the ALL – Accor Live Limitless (formerly known as Le Club) Gold status, you usually will have to spend 30 nights or €2,800 at Accor Hotels. Yet, there is a way to get the status much quicker and cheaper, although just for a single year.

ALL Shareholders Club

Join the Shareholders Club for One Year of ALL Gold

The so-called Shareholders Club is the most convenient way to gold tier. If you have just a single registered Accor share (WKN: 860206 | ISIN: FR0000120404), you can enter the Shareholders Club and will get the ALL – Accor Live Limitless Gold Status for one year (currently until 12/2025).

Sadly, you’ll only get the Gold status once for 12 months and will then need the required status points or stays to renew the status.


We’ve tested this way ourselves and received our Gold Card within two weeks!

Currently, Accor shares cost roughly €39 each (on June 7, 2024). You’ve to add the fee of your broker. You can find the full terms and conditions of the program here. Accor offers information on how to register as a shareholder here, turning your stake in a registered share.

ALL Shareholders Club TandC
Article 2 of the Shareholder’s Club terms and conditions specifiy you need a single registered share or 50 bearer shears to join (and get status).

Choosing the way of 50 bearer shares will cost you roughly €2,000, still €800 less than the regular qualification threshold. However, we don’t recommend paying that price for a mid-level hotel status.


Before you venture into turbo capitalism and purchase an Accor share, let’s take a look at the perks of ALL Gold – the golden middle in ALL’s five tier ranks:

  • Early check-in or late check-out, on request and based on availability
  • Upgrade to the next room category, based on availability
  • Welcome drink (coffee, soft drinks, beer or wine)
  • Guaranteed room up to 3 days before arrival

The Gold status is not a high-end status, but ALL – Accor Live Limitless is generally rather modest when it comes to the status benefits. The only real difference to the highest level, the Platinum status, is the access to the Executive Lounge. ALL – Accor Live Limitless also offers a Diamond Status with complimentary breakfast (but only on weekends).

Speaking from experience, Accor hotels are usually generous when it comes to both upgrades and welcome drinks. In my 12 months of ALL Gold (earned through staying 30 nights), the welcome drink usually includes everyone in the booking – and I’ve stayed with groups up to six people. Also, I have been upgraded on almost any occasion, despite Gold being a mid-tier status.


Even if the ALL – Accor Live Limitless Gold status isn’t particularly attractive, upgrades and early check-in / late check-out can be worth €40 for one year. ALL – Accor Live Limitless is not, however, on the same level as other programs, such as Hilton Honors or Marriott Bonvoy.

    Presently 50 shares are required

  2. mike says:

    It’s so cryptic to figure out which kind of shares a particular broker sells. Is it possible to change the share type?

  3. Walter Claes says:

    Can you prolong your status by bying some new shares the next year?

    • Felix says:

      Hi Walter! As long as you own Accor shares, you remain part of the shareholders club and are entitled to Accor Gold status.

        i do think that is not correct, see main text above

        Sadly you’ll only get the Gold status once for 12 months and will then need the required status points or stays to renew the status.

        otherwise it would be to easy!

        • Felix says:

          Thanks for pointing that out, freddy. Was a misunderstanding on my part, I will check it again and edit the text accordingly.

  4. freddy says:

    i thought the card would be valid till dec of the next year after inscription:
    The ALL – Accor Live Limitless Gold card is valid until December 31 of the year after the year of subscription.

    Hi Johannes,
    I have a Sparkasse Depotkonto. I’m a bit confused about the different between Registered stock and bearer. If I buy the stock via Sparkasse, do I need 50 or just 1? Thank you so much!

    • Ditmar Lange says:

      If you have a bearer share (“Inhaberaktie”, meaning that the company does not know who currently holds the stock), you will need 50. If you have a registered share (“Namensaktie”), 1 will suffice.

  6. Tobias says:

    Hi, es muss ja unbedingt eine registrierte Namensaktie sein und keine Inhaberaktie (bearer). Wie hast du das genau gemacht (Broker, WKN).

    Danke und LG, Tobias
