Making a booking and then not actually staying at a hotel (and not cancelling) is what is known in the industry as a no-show. You will not get bonus points for this, even if the stay is prepaid. You will therefore have to check in and stay in the room in order to earn bonus points for a stay.

Please note that if you have initiated a booking or logged in to My page, you will have to start over.
