Joystar Adds E&O Insurance to Host Agency Programs

All Home-Based Travel Agents Are Covered Under the Plan

ALISO VIEJO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- October 10, 2006 -- Joystar, Inc. (OTCBB: JYSR), one of the nation's fastest growing travel agency networks and leading seller of cruises and vacations, today announced it has purchased a $2,000,000 Professional Liability Insurance policy that covers all of its home-based travel agents.

"The high cost of E&O Insurance has been a major topic of concern for all travel agents," stated William M. Alverson, Joystar's Chairman and CEO. He added, "The bottom line is everyone makes mistakes. Without coverage you risk losing everything. Being covered under professional liability insurance isn't just to protect you in case of negligence. It can also save you from embarrassment and a tarnished business reputation when a client asks if you are covered."

Alverson stated, "We are very proud to be able to offer this important and valuable benefit at no cost to our members. Investing the money to include E&O coverage for our travel agents made good business sense for Joystar. It was the right thing to do for several reasons."

The business of hosting travel entrepreneurs is still very new and rapidly emerging model. It has the potential to create hundreds of millions of dollars in shareholder value. Tens of thousands of travel agents have moved to an in-home operation and hundreds of thousands more are expected to enter the fray over the next decade.

"Travel agents are looking for a partner they can trust; one that is willing to invest in their long-term success and well-being."
