The only thing better than travel is getting an amazing deal on travel.

WestJet’s RBC World Elite Mastercard, voted Moneysense Magazine’s #1 Travel Rewards Credit Card two years in a row, just got better. Cardholders earn WestJet Rewards on everyday purchases, a complimentary checked bag, a $250 sign up bonus as well as a $99.00 companion voucher for flights within Canada and continental USA. Today WestJet announced an upgrade to their companion vouchers. The vouchers can be used anywhere WestJet flies including their new destination London, England.

Here’s the skinny:

  1. Apply for the RBC World Elite Mastercard online or at your local Royal Bank branch.
  2. Make a purchase with your brand new card; pay your bill.
  3. You’ll receive your $250 sign up bonus and companion voucher after the second billing cycle.
  4. Call 1-888-WESTJET to book your flights. Companion vouchers cannot be booked online.
  5. The primary card holder and the companion MUST travel on the same itinerary. The cost of the first ticket is whatever is available at time of purchase, whether you get an uber low seat sale or opt for the sweet plus seats, the companion voucher the same low flat voucher price (see image below for pricing). Taxes are additional and range from $50-250 depending on the destination.
  6. The best of the best: no blackout dates or restrictions when booking your voucher. You can also use those WestJet dollars you’ve been racking up with your gas and grocery purchases to pay for the ticket before taxes as well as the cost of the voucher!
