Online payment options

When it comes to paying for your flight or vacation, you’ve got options. We’ve put together simple, step-by-step instructions for how to book your flight or vacation with all types and combinations of available forms of payment. 

The first step if you're paying with WestJet dollars, Travel Bank credits or a companion voucher is to sign in to your WestJet Rewards account. With your WestJet Rewards account, you can check your tier status, view your WestJet dollars balance, see your available companion vouchers and more. An account is also required for you to be issued or use WestJet Travel Bank credits.

You can reset your password, or retrieve your WestJet Rewards ID, by clicking on Forgot ID or password on the account overview page.

If you continue to experience issues accessing your account it may be that your email address is linked to multiple accounts (i.e. one address used for several members of the same family, or you have more than one account). Please re-attempt to sign in using your 9-digit WestJet Rewards ID and password instead. Your Rewards ID can be found in most WestJet email communications sent to you.
