  4. WestJet Vacations packages are packaged vacations for up to nine guests on a single booking which include, at minimum, airfare and accommodations, and are sold for a combined base package price.

When ancillary products are purchased from a third-party partner, WestJet dollars are awarded to one member only based on the total eligible spend of the booking.

  11. Milestone awards are directly tied to the member’s milestone qualifying spend at any point in time and are independent of tier qualifying spend and tier status. Members who achieve tier status and benefits through a promotional offer, or through Status Lift, are not eligible to receive milestone awards until the specified milestone qualifying spend requirement(s) are met. Should a member be eligible to choose an award (applicable to awards at $8,000 and above), they will be able to make their selection when signed into their account on westjet.com. The choice must be made, and the award used, prior to the expiry date. Once a choice is made, it is considered final and cannot be reversed, nor can the award selected be exchanged for another option later. Terms and conditions for redemption of individual vouchers awarded as a milestone award apply. See westjet.com/tiers for more details.
