Annual World Elite round-trip companion voucher

Deposited vouchers are accessible at westjet.com/account.

Using your World Elite Companion Voucher

To use the World Elite companion voucher you must purchase one WestJet-marketed and operated flight anywhere WestJet flies and the second guest on the same itinerary will pay $119 CAD or $399 CAD (plus taxes, fees and other Air Transportation Charges). If you became a first-time cardholder between February 24 – May 31, 2021 your first companion voucher will be $0 CAD (plus taxes, fees and other ATC charges) for travel on an Economy fare within Canada, to the U.S., Mexico and the Caribbean^. Your World Elite companion voucher(s) must be redeemed prior to the date shown on the voucher. This means you must book with WestJet using the voucher prior to the expiry date. Travel may occur after booking.
