    I would prefer to go
    You would prefer to go
    He/she/it would prefer to go

    I would rather go
    You would rather go
    He/she/it would rather go

    'prefer' takes 'to'
    'rather' does not take 'to'

    You're welcome!

    Note that 'go' is used of 'goes' not because of 'rather' but because of the auxiliary verb 'would'

    I would go
    You would go
    He/she/it would go
