Virgin Rewards - can two people use their points on one booking?

Apologies if this is the wrong area for this question but does anyone know if it is possible for two adults to book together under one booking but each use their own reward points towards the costs (money + miles)? Or does it need to be two separate bookings? From what I can see I think itís the latter but wanted to check in case I was missing something.

Also - is it possible to transfer points to someone else (another way round the above) some things Iíve been reading online suggests yes, others suggest no and Iím struggling to find the option on the Virgin site other than gifting points - but that seems to be buying them as a gift rather then gifting points earned.

Thanks in advance

It can only be done by calling and it depends on the staff member you speak to, it's not an official policy as far as I know but when DW and I booked PE and upgraded to UC with miles they transferred DW's share of the miles to me, then booked both from my account on one booking ref.

Can't be done yourself without incurring a fee which is not worth it. Try the above.

If always found them very helpful on the phone and always willing to transfer points for free so you can use them all on a booking. If they say no just hang up and call again youíll get someone who will do it.

We might have done that... I didn't make the phone call, so I'm not certain, but I think we had enough points between us for 2 free flights.

I can say that we called, got sorted out with reasonable dates and (as expected) had to pay the taxes, and also for the kids at full fare, but the total was under 2k for 4 of us from Manchester in August 2019 peak, so we were happy.

The official rule is you can combine miles from more than 1 account but it has to be in increments of a one way flight that youíre booking.

You can get lucky and get someone that will use random amounts if you donít have enough in 1 of the accounts for one of the flights. You can keep calling until you find one of those agents 😏.
