Sharing points

Explorer C

I'm booking with points and dont have enough to book my entire 3 person group, but the other two people's points plus mine is more than enough.  Is there any way to utilizing everyone's points when you're on the same itinerary or is the only option to transfer to one person who then books?

Sharing points is a BAD idea. Why? Because you have to pay about a penny a point to do so.

That erodes well over half the value of "shared" points. There are better ways to waste your money.


Instead, look at booking one way tickets. They are no more costly than round trips  , and perhaps your other two travelers might have enough points to buy their own one ways.
