The trips

No change fees

Effective March 12, 2020, and for travel prior to June 30, 2020, all AIR MILES change fees will be waived.

This one-time cancellation will apply to changes to existing reservations made through AIR MILES.

Please note that cancellations are facilitated by AIR MILES in accordance with the policies of the various travel partners and suppliers.

For travel after June 30, 2020, AIR MILES asks that you call as close to your departure date as possible, to give those who need to travel very soon a chance to access customer service sooner.

AIR MILES follows the policy of its suppliers (Air Canada, Air Transat, WestJet…). If they offer a travel credit, AIR MILES will pass it on to you.

For example, the Air Canada travel credit will be valid for travel within 24 months of the date of your flight cancellation.
