Combining Travel Funds

Explorer C

I have travel funds for four people expiring in 24 days... $129 per person, $516 total.  I read on some of these forums that you can book a dummy ticket and cancel it to combine the funds into one, then ask for a LUV Voucher refund after the expiration date.  The reason to combine them here, obviously, is because the LUV Voucher costs $100 per travel fund.  I'd only have $29 ($116 total) per ticket remaining, but if I can combine them, I'd have $416 total remaining.  Problem is, I don't know how to book this "dummy" flight.  How can I combine them if the travel funds can only be used for the person their under?  Wouldn't I still have to buy four individual tickets and cancel four individual tickets, ending up with the same result?  Could someone tell me the secret, please?

You cannot combine travel funds associated with different people.  The combining of travels funds you are referring to is only possible when a single person has multiple travel funds.  In your situation it really is use it within 24 days or lose it.
