For everything you need to know to ensure your on-time departure, visit https://www.westjet.com/en-ca/airport/check-in for flights operated by WestJet. For flights within Canada, the recommended check in time is 120 minutes before flight departure. For flights to and from international destinations or the United States, the recommended check in time is 150 minutes before flight departure. You must be through security and customs, if applicable, and at your departure gate 40 minutes before the scheduled departure of your flight.

Domestic: For flights within Canada, all guests aged 18 and over will be required to present one piece of valid government issued photo ID showing their name, date of birth and gender. If a valid government issued photo ID is not available, then two pieces of valid government issued non-photo ID will be required, one of which must show name, date of birth and gender. ID is not required for children under the age of 12; however, it is recommended.
International: Travellers are responsible for obtaining and carrying all necessary documentation such as, but not limited to: visa, passport, citizenship card, birth certificate, vaccination certificates and certified legal letter for children travelling with only one parent. Identification must meet the requirements set by immigration and aviation authorities in each country. WestJet and WestJet Vacations strongly recommend that you contact your destination country’s embassy for your specific entrance requirements. It is the guest’s responsibility to ensure they have the appropriate identification and travel documentation for their flight as WestJet is not responsible for denied entry.

A piece of valid government issued photo ID that proves your Canadian residency is required upon hotel check-in. Some hotels may require you to present a credit card or cash deposit upon check-in to cover additional expenses or incidentals during your stay. Such deposit is unrelated to any payment received by WestJet Vacations for your hotel booking with the Supplier. Please contact hotel for details. For non-Canadian residents, hotels reserve the right to charge the difference to the applicable rate, based on the guest’s country of residence. WestJet Vacations is not responsible for these additional charges imposed by the hotel if proper identification is not presented at check-in. Check-in and check-out times vary by property and may not coincide with flight arrival and departure times. All-inclusive privileges begin at the time of check in and end at time of check out. All guests who wish to check out later than the specified hotel check-out time are required to pay any additional charges that the hotel will impose upon them directly to the hotel.
WestJet Vacations will forward requests for specific room types, bedding configurations and other room requests to the hotel. We cannot guarantee they will be available.

WestJet utilizes a ticketless reservation system. You do not require a paper ticket for your flight. In most cases, vouchers or tickets are not required to redeem for hotel, car, activities, or services. A piece of photo identification is enough to redeem vacation services. You will be notified if a voucher is required for any part of your vacation. Multiple guests traveling on the same itinerary but booked on separate bookings will not be identified as a group, will not receive group services, and may be subject to cancellation.
When travelling, you should recognize and respect the social and political standard of living. This includes religion, local practices, political systems and the conditions of utilities, services and accommodation which may differ from those found in your own country. WestJet Vacations will not assume responsibility for any services including water, electricity, security, sanitary conditions, pools, food and beverage, which may be interrupted or suspended during your stay. Food, water and beverages may not be on par with a Canadian or US standard. You must assume sole responsibility for any illness suffered while travelling or upon return due to the quality of the food, water and beverages.

WestJet Vacations acts only in the capacity of an agent for guests or the supplier of goods and services rendered. As such, we maintain no control over the personnel, equipment, operations or goods of the supplier. When you fly to and from your destination, WestJet’s tariffs apply, including limits on and/or exclusions of liability. WestJet Vacations assumes no responsibility for a schedule change by WestJet nor any additional costs (accommodation, meals, etc.) caused by flight delays or misconnections.
Guests have the option to participate in excursions, tours or other activities (collectively, the “excursions”) that may be offered by local representatives or third-party suppliers for an additional fee. Some excursions may have a risk of personal injury, loss or damage and are purchased at the guest’s sole risk. WestJet Vacations assumes no responsibility for any claim, loss, damage, cost, quality, or expense arising from a guest's participation in such excursions. Any written or oral contract is considered to be exclusively between the guest and the Supplier.
Flight times, airlines and type of aircraft are subject to change and substitution. WestJet Vacations will make every effort to inform guests of any changes.

Quarantine costs incurred for any reason, including COVID-19, will be the responsibility of the guest.
WestJet Vacations reserves the right to refuse any booking and decline any guest(s) at any time. In all cases, the liability of WestJet Vacations for any loss, damage or injury, whether physical or mental, arising from its own acts, omissions or negligence, is limited to the price of the package booked.
