WestJet Rewards accounts



1. Signing up for a WestJet Rewards account

What is a WestJet Rewards account?

A WestJet Rewards account provides you with the ability to manage your bookings online, subscribe to email communications and earn WestJet dollars through WestJet Rewards. An account is also required in order to be issued or use WestJet Travel Bank credits. A WestJet Rewards account is either created by you, or by our Service and Sales Centre on your behalf.

How do I sign up?

Select the Join link from the top menu and follow the prompts. You will be asked to enter some basic information about yourself and to choose a password. Upon the successful creation of your account you will be assigned a 9-digit WestJet Rewards ID.

Is my information secure?

The security and privacy of your information is a top priority. We are proud to have a secure system that safeguards all the information stored in your account. WestJet will not use any of the information stored in your account for any business reason other than to assist you with your online bookings and for related account benefits, such as your participation in WestJet Rewards.



2. WestJet Rewards ID and password

How do I change my password?

Sign in to your WestJet Rewards account and select Account info. Then select the Change password link from the sub-menu. You will be asked to enter your old password, new password and then retype your new password. Once you have filled these fields, click on the 'Change password' button. If entered correctly, you'll have successfully changed your password and will receive a confirmation email.

I forgot my password. How can I retrieve it?

Select the Sign in link from the top menu. When you reach the sign-in page, click on the Forgot ID or password link. Enter your email address in the field and click 'Reset password'. You will receive an email requesting that you change your password. Click on the link in the email and complete the change password process.

Why can't I sign into my WestJet Rewards account using my email address?

This option is only available if your email address is linked to a single WestJet Rewards account. If your email address has been used for more than one account (eg. family members sharing a single email address or you have more than one WestJet Rewards ID), you'll need to sign in using your 9-digit WestJet Rewards ID. To enable email address sign-in functionality, sign in to your account with your WestJet Rewards ID and change the email address to one that is unique for your account.

I have more than one WestJet Rewards ID. What should I do?

If you have more than one WestJet Rewards ID, please contact us by email with all of your WestJet Rewards IDs. We will assist by consolidating your information into one account for you. You may not receive an immediate response to this email - don't worry, we'll respond as soon as we can.



3. Using my WestJet Rewards ID to make a booking

How do I make a booking using my WestJet Rewards ID?

You will be asked to sign in with a WestJet Rewards ID or email address on the Guest details page when making your reservation. If you decide not to sign in you will still be able to complete your booking, but it will not be connected to your WestJet Rewards account; therefore you will not be able to view this itinerary when signed into your account.

What is Manage trips?

Manage trips is a feature of your WestJet Rewards account that allows you to view, change and refund the bookings made with your WestJet Rewards ID.

Why can't I see all my bookings?

You will only see bookings created using your WestJet Rewards ID, and only those bookings created through westjet.com. You will not be able to see bookings made through a travel agent or by someone else on your behalf.

Can other guests on my itinerary see the bookings I've made for them?

Your WestJet Rewards ID is limited to your individual use, and we suggest that you do not share your login information with anyone else. If you wish to send itineraries to other travel companions, you will receive an email with guest and itinerary information that you can forward.

Can I view changes that a WestJet agent has made on my behalf?

If the booking was originally made using a WestJet Rewards ID, changes made by a WestJet agent will be visible in the Manage bookings section.
