WestJet Vacations increases checked baggage fees

Effective November 5, 2018, WestJet Vacations is updating its checked baggage fees to align with WestJet’s overall baggage policy. 

Guests travelling with WestJet Vacations on or after Dec. 3, 2018 will be subject to a $30-35.40 CAD/USD fee for their first checked bag. This change only applies to bookings made on or after Nov. 5, 2018 for travel on or after Dec. 3, 2018.

Existing policies remain the same

If your clients booked their WestJet Vacations package before Nov. 5, 2018, their first checked bag will be included as per our previous policy. If you need to make a change to a booking that was made before Nov. 5, 2018, please call the Travel Support Team (TST) at 1-877-664-3205 and a member of the TST will ensure the original baggage policy is applied.

Clients looking for a more inclusive experience, could pick the Premium fare, which includes two checked bags, extra leg and elbow room in a Premium cabin seat and more. WestJet Rewards members in the Gold tier get their first and second checked bags free.

This benefit is valid for the Rewards member and up to eight (8) additional guests travelling on the same reservation*. WestJet RBC Mastercard cardholders also get the first checked bag free for the primary cardholder and up to eight (8) additional guests on the same reservation.
