The gift of travel is the best gift you can give someone. But how? Buying airline gift cards hasn’t always been the easiest.

For years I’ve been asking Westjet how to buy gift cards and only received a “we’re looking into it” response.

You could buy Westjet gift cards and vouchers with Save On More points, but that was 6 years ago. Nothing has moved beyond that.

Air Canada, however, let’s you buy them.

Air Canada Gift Card

Here’s how to buy Air Canada gift cards and vouchers:

Go online, pick the amount you want to spend (starting at $250) and the person will receive an Air Canada eGift card within 48 hours.

That’s it. While Westjet gift cards are still impossible to buy, buying Air Canada gift cards are a click and 48 hours away.

You can also buy Air Canada gift cards at Canada Post locations and by redeeming your Aeroplan mileage.

When redeemed, Air Canada Gift Cards are combinable with other forms of payment (e.g., gift card, credit card), and you can check the gift card balance online at any time.

Where are you going next?
