Warning When Making Interbike Reservations

Published July 31, 2008

NOVATO, CA (BRAIN)—When Marin Bikes called the third party travel company that booked their rooms for Interbike to verify their reservations, the Northern California company was shocked when the phones were disconnected.

"These guys fleeced us on our accommodations bookings," said Steve Glazer, vice president of sales and marketing for Marin. "I hope that they did not get anyone else."

The name of the company Marin booked through is (or was) called Central Reservations Travel, located in North Las Vegas. But Glazer urged all bicycle companies that booked with other similar third party companies to make sure they're legitimate operations.

To avoid any problems with Interbike travel reservations, please contact Travel Planners at (800)-221-3531 or (212)-532-1660 or by clicking on link.

Travel Planners is the official travel partner of Interbike and works closely with show management to offer the best rates on Las Vegas hotels and travel arrangements.
