Reward Points

New Arrival

Am I allowed to purchase a ticket for my family member using my points?

Sure thing! Rapid Rewards points can be used to book fares for anyone.


One huge advantage is that points from cancelled flights are redeposited back into your account, not linked to a specific passenger, as with travel funds from cancelled cash WGA fares.

"Member can use his or her points to purchase seats for him/herself or others; however, the Member is solely responsible for making any changes to the itinerary after booking. A Passenger traveling on a ticket using points from another Member's account will not be allowed to make changes to the itinerary. The Passenger must contact the Member and have the Member make any necessary changes"
