It allows the primary cardholder to take a companion on a round trip on the same itinerary for $99 (Canada and contiguous US), $299 (sun destinations including Hawaii, Mexico and the Caribbean), or $399 (UK and Ireland), plus taxes, fees and charges on any WestJet-marketed and operated flight anywhere in the WestJet network.
The first checked bag at no charge benefit has also been extended to include the entire network.“This upgraded benefit confirms WestJet's commitment to our WestJet RBC World Elite MasterCard holders who asked for access to our entire network when using their companion voucher,” averred Marshall Wilmot, WestJet’s SVP marketing and digital. “We are thrilled to now offer unrestricted access to the WestJet network without requiring a minimum annual card spend or high annual fees. This companion benefit along with the first checked bag at no charge is unmatched in the travel rewards credit card market in Canada.”

With the new changes to the annual companion voucher, clients have even more choice,” added Glenn DeSouza, VP retail cards, RBC. “In partnership with WestJet, we're pleased to offer our clients a suite of premium benefits through the WestJet RBC World Elite MasterCard.”
