With holiday season comes gift-giving, and if you know people who love to travel, this might just be the perfect option for a present!

Travelling is always exciting – you get to see a new place, have new experiences, and possibly even immerse yourself in a new culture. Now, WestJet is offering gift cards for purchase online for all those people in your life who love to travel, and then some. 

This is pretty big news for travel-lovers and people who never know what to get their distant cousin for the holidays.

Whether it’s a birthday gift, a Christmas gift, or something in between, WestJet gift cards can be used for travel on WesttJet or WestJet Encore, seat selection and taxes and fees on travel.

You can purchase either a plastic gift card or eGift cards (and get them delivered to the person you’re giving them to!), and you can add any denomination from $25 CAD to $2,000 CAD per card. However, if you’re really ballin’, keep in mind that your cart can’t exceed $10,000 CAD when you’re buying gift cards online.

You should also keep in mind that the cards are non-refundable, according to WestJet’s FAQ.

Where can you use the gift cards to travel, you ask?

“The gift of flight is the gift of experience, adventure and travel to any of WestJet’s more than 100 destinations across North America, Central America, the Caribbean and Europe,” said Marshall Wilmot, WestJet Chief Loyalty Officer. “You can now give and receive the gift of travel, whether that is to cover the entire cost of someone’s ticket or make a contribution; it’s a very special gift to give.” 

You can buy the gift cards here.
