How Does the WestJet Companion Voucher Work?

One of the main draws to WestJet’s RBC co-branded credit cards is the annual round-trip companion voucher. This perk offers a discounted base fare for a second passenger when the first passenger pays the full price.

Many cardholders find a lot of value in the voucher, and it’s one of the key factors to consider when deciding whether to keep the card and pay the annual fee every year.

In this article, let’s take a look at how to obtain WestJet annual round-trip companion vouchers, how they work, and how to redeem them for maximum value along your travels.

As you might expect, the voucher comes with a number of rules that govern its use.

First off, it can only be used on new bookings, which must be made before the voucher expires. However, keep in mind that travel can occur after the voucher’s expiry date.

You can redeem the voucher for Basic, Econo, EconoFlex, Premium, and PremiumFlex fares, as long as no corporate codes are applied. The voucher cannot be used for Business, BusinessFlex, or Member Exclusive fares.

The flight must be marketed and operated by WestJet, WestJet Encore, and/or WestJet Link, and vouchers aren’t valid on WestJet Vacations, charters, or with any codeshare or interline partners, such as Delta.
