Sounds like your clutch... is it standard or automatic...doesn't matter..if its automatic...pull the dipstick for the transmisson oil, smell it it burnt... does it look brown, when you rub your fingers over the end of the there a lot of black color on your fingers.... if it is a standard, check your clutch oil... I am sure that this would be a self adjusting clutch.... it may need a new clutch

either that or make sure its in gear (a little humor there).....

chains don't slip
they slap or break but because of the sprockets they cannot slip

by slipping , have you got a clutch system and are the engine rpms increasing but the vehicle speed is steady

Revs of the car go up but the speed doesn't increase at all,

The most obvious cause to this fault would be the clutch slipping then suddenly gripping and away it goes.Now are there any cluncking noises or is there any strong smell when this fault occurs.If there is a strong smell the chances are you will require a new clutch.If there is no smell it could be clutch release bearing,either way gearbox will have to come out.If there is any loud clunking noise,possible drive shaft,but this is unlikely. the problem needs to be diagnosed by a mechanic.Always ask for quotes 1st,If a clutch is required be prepaired for possible damaged flywheel.

Sounds like 2nd gear in the transmission is slipping. Cars usually shift at 15-20 mph from first to 2nd. First check the trans fluid.

Can you tell if the engine speed increased ?
Something in the transmission could be slipping, or the tach could be faulty.

Honda accord euro 2004 will not accelerate

Engine speed increasing w/o acceleration suggests a problem w/ torque converter slipping or drive clutches slipping. I assume this is an automatic. Make sure you have adequate fluid in the transmission. I would also check for any OBD2 transmission codes that might be presented.

Code P0420 for catalyst system efficiency below threshold will not affect engine performance. It only means the catalytic converter is not performing as designed.

good luck
