Our Review

The RBC WestJet World Elite Mastercard has recently gone through a few changes, but change isn’t always a bad thing and this card still offers cardholders rewards that they can earn anywhere and use any time.

For starters, this World Elite credit card from RBC gives a pretty nice welcome bonus of 250 WestJet dollars that can be used on any WestJet flight – No blackouts, no restrictions. Then this card allows cardholders to earn even more WestJet dollars with every purchase they make.

  • Earn 2% back on all purchases made on WestJet flights and WestJet vacations, and…
  • Earn 1.5% back on all other purchases.

This WestJet World Elite Mastercard from RBC gives cardholders some pretty nice travel perks as well. For starters, cardholders will get an annual discounted companion voucher for a round trip flight allowing cardholders to get an annual round trip companion flight for:

  • $99 – for anywhere in Canada and Continental US,
  • $299 – to travel to Hawaii, Mexico, Central America, and the Caribbean, and…
  • $399 – to travel anywhere WestJet flies in Europe.

If you are a WestJet World Elite cardholder, WestJet will also check your first bag for free on all WestJet flights, and you will have access to 24/7 Concierge Service and 800 airport lounges worldwide (although, keep in mind you will still have to pay each time you visit one of those lounges).

Then to top it all off, this card comes with 10 different types of Travel and Purchase insurance. Check out the Insurance Coverage tab above for more information.

This card does come with an annual fee of $119, but if you do a lot of traveling through WestJet, it could definitely be worth it.

Looking for a card with a companion voucher, but this one doesn't seem like the right fit for you?

The will give you a companion award eVoucher when you spend at least $30K a year, but unlike the WestJet card, it will allow you to travel anywhere British Airways flies. Plus, this card will give you 50,000 bonus points, as well as a higher return on your spend.
