Can I cancel my WestJet flight?

Do you have a flight with WestJet that you can no longer use? It happens to more people than you think! We help many travellers like you recover money from their non-refundable flights every year. 

 

Can I cancel my WestJet flight and get a refund?

Yes! You can cancel your WetJet flight in advance, however, refunds will depend on your ticket type. All bookings made within 24 hours (excluding same-day travel) can be cancelled for no fee. Same-day travel is a flight departing within 24 hours from the time of booking.

 

Cancel fees after 24 hours from the time of booking

  • Basic fares: There is no refund or future travel credit for cancellations after 24 hours from the time of booking.

If your ticket type is Economy, Economy Flex, Premium or business, you can still cancel your WestJet flight, but you will have to pay a fee.

We have given you the fees in Canadian dollars, but you will be charged in the currency of the original transaction - this is why the fees below vary slightly, depending on the exchange rate of your currency.
