Beware of Unauthorized Registration and Hotel Solicitations
Use MCI to Avoid Fraud! Note that MCI is the only official registration and hotel agency associated with WOC2018. While other hotel resellers and travel agencies may contact you with offers for your trip, they are not endorsed by or affiliated with WOC2018 or the ICO. Beware that entering into financial agreements with non-endorsed companies can have costly consequences. Read the alert about WOC2018 fraudulent sites.
