As the controversy over Joystar heats up, the Professional Association of Host Agencies is speaking up about the role of independent, home-based travel agents and host agencies. "When a host agency, such as Joystar, allows their seller of travel registrations to lapse, or has financial problems, it affects not only their affiliated agents, who are left without commissions and a booking source but also other hosts and suppliers. There is a ripple effect throughout the industry," PATH said in a statement.
