For domestic travel only, WestJet's maximum liability as a result of damage and/or loss is 1,288 Special Drawing Rights per bag (approximately $2,300 CAD subject to currency exchange rates). For international travel, WestJet's liability will be limited by either the Montreal Convention or the Warsaw Convention, as applicable. In most cases, the limitation amount will be 1,288 Special Drawing Rights. If you have purchased excess valuation ‑ which is available at the airport, prior to departure, for a fee ‑ the maximum liability is $3,000 CAD (which includes the standard 1288 SDRs).
In the event that a bag is lost, guests will be reimbursed for their baggage fee in addition to settlement for the loss of baggage.
You may wish to consider the purchase of travel insurance for items valued exceeding WestJet's maximum liability.
