Travel Bank credits

Outside of 24 hours from booking, if you’ve cancelled your flight or changed to a fare lower in price, your refund will be returned as a credit with WestJet and held in your Travel Bank—an extension of your WestJet Rewards account.

If you are new to Travel Bank because of cancellations from Coronavirus (COVID-19), please know that we are responding to feedback and working on solutions to make your next flight with WestJet worth the wait. Thank you for your trust and patience as this situation evolves day by day.
