RBC WestJet World Elite

The RBC WestJet World Elite card earns WestJet Dollars on all purchases and is available to all individuals in Canada.

This card offers an annual companion fare in addition to a first free checked bag, for the cardholder and up to eight guests, on WestJet flights.

Earning Rewards

The RBC WestJet World Elite credit card accrues WestJet Dollars (WJD) for all purchases made on the card:

  • 2% back in WestJet Dollars for all purchases of WestJet flights or WestJet vacation packages.
  • 1.5% back in WestJet Dollars for all other purchases.

Redeeming Rewards

One WestJet Dollar is equal to one Canadian dollar when redeemed for flights or WestJet vacations packages within the WestJet network. To redeem, simply sign in to your WestJet account when booking a flight and you will have the option to redeem as much of your eligible WJD balance as possible.

WestJet Dollars can only be applied against the base fare cost, not towards any of the additional taxes and fees that make up the remainder of the ticket cost.

Benefits

RBC WestJet World Elite cardholders are eligible to receive an annual companion fare. This companion voucher will be deposited into your WestJet Rewards account and gives you the opportunity to book a companion fare at a reduced rate when you pay full price for your own flight on the same itinerary. WestJet Dollars can also be redeemed in conjunction with a companion voucher to save even more.

The voucher can be redeemed for the following destinations with the respective fees:

  • Travel within Canada or the continental USA – $119 in fees
  • Travel to Hawaii or Mexico – $399 in fees
  • Travel to anywhere else in the WestJet network – $399 in fees

The cardholder will receive one free checked bag for themselves and up to 8 guests on WestJet flights, provided they are all booked on the same itinerary.

RBC World Elite Mastercard cardholders are eligible to sign up for free Boingo WiFi at over one million hotspots worldwide. Through Boingo, you are also able to access free in-flight WiFi on WestJet flights.
