1-I'll pay for the trips and stays of all of you.
2-I'll pay for all your trips and stays.


Is 1 correct?
I can use 1 when I am talking to one person, but could it also have the same meaning as 1?

1 is OK, but I wouldn't use it for an individual.;-)

Thanks Tdol,
I wouldn't either. I typed 1 instead of 2!
I can use 2 when I am talking to one person, but could it also have the same meaning as 1?
That was the question.
In other words, would you use 2 for more than one person?

And once again, I managed to post the same question twice.
A new member had aleady answered this, and I thought you had deleted his reply and written in yours instead. I just found the other post.
