Side-Along Apparition

"Maybe it's better when you do it yourself, I didn’t enjoy it much when Dumbledore took me along for the ride."
-- Harry (HBP17)

Side-Along Apparition

Side-Along Apparition is a form of instant magical travel in which the Apparator touches someone else, such as a child too young to Apparate, and Apparates with that person as a “passenger”.
