Joystar Begins Beta Test on VacationCompare.com

Travel agency network Joystar recently announced it will launch the consumer beta of VacationCompare.com, a comparison shopping marketplace that helps consumers make informed decisions for their leisure travel planning. VactionCompare.com electronically passes consumers' "request for quotes" off to the independent travel agencies in its network who are experts in their respective fields. For example, when a consumer requests a quote for a Carnival cruise, it will be Carnival specialists who compete for their business. Mexico requests will go to Mexico experts, and luxury travel requests will only be handled by travel agencies in the VacationCompare.com network who have experience working with affluent travelers.
