    based on what you’ve said, I voted 50-50…since you don’t have to pay utilities AND you’re doing the driving (will you be driving the individual as well?) I think 50-50 is fair. 

    However, I don’t know your relationship with the person, their financial situation, or if they’d get upset that you want to go 50-50 since you didnt have to pay for airfare.

    I would split it up per person (so each paying 1/3).

    When my SO and I were living in an apartment with a roommate, that’s what we did.

    The plane ticket and car is irrelavant, but if the individual will be getting a ride with the couple I would expect him/her to chip in and pay for gas.  But any rental home/hotel room/etc should be split by heads imo like a roommate would.

    I vote 50/50. If the spouse of the couple in question wasn’t going, both bedrooms would still be occupied. I to me, it should be 50/50.

    sienna76:  I would split it by person (66/33), however if the couple is covering the individuals flight cost (even with airmiles or whatever), I would do 50/50.

    I would split it by person, because I think that’s only fair.
