Eligible Members who spend a minimum of $30,000 CAD on qualifying purchases on their Card in a calendar year (“calendar year” refers to the time period starting from 1 January through to 31 December) will receive a maximum of one Companion Voucher for that calendar year. As an Eligible Member, you will be able to apply the Companion Voucher towards the purchase of a flight for a companion travelling with you, on the same Reward Flight (“Companion Ticket”).
Alternatively, for all valid Companion Vouchers earned, you can choose to use your Companion Voucher to make a solo Reward Flight booking, which will entitle you to a 50% discount on the Avios fare for your journey. Taxes fees and charges for you will still be payable (if travelling solo) or on your companion’s ticket (if travelling with a companion).
Please note that qualifying purchases exclude cash advances (including balance transfers, cash-like transactions and bill payments that are not pre-authorized charges that you set up with a merchant), interest charges or fees, and credits for returns and adjustments will reduce or cancel the spend amount by the amounts originally charged.
When booking a Companion Ticket with a Companion Voucher, you can choose to make a full Avios redemption or from other Avios and cash price options (subject to payment of the Taxes, Fees and Charges for each seat).
Only one Companion Voucher can be earned in any calendar year. If an Eligible Member reaches their spend target before the end of the calendar year then further spends, it will not accumulate towards another Companion Voucher. Eligible Members can begin earning towards their next Companion Voucher from 1 January each year. Please allow six (6) to eight (8) weeks for the Companion Voucher to be added to the British Airways Executive Club account after meeting the spending requirement.
The Companion Voucher entitles the Eligible Member to purchase a Companion Ticket at the time of booking a Reward Flight, without having to pay for the price of the companion’s flight. The Companion Voucher will be issued in the name of the primary cardholder, who must travel on any Companion Voucher booking. Reservations and bookings for both the Reward Flight of the Eligible Member and the Companion Ticket of the companion must be made at the same time, for the same flight, on the same date, in the same class and cabin and on the same passenger name record (PNR) for travel on the same itinerary.
Eligible Members will be responsible for paying, without limitation, the taxes, fees and carrier charges, related to the Companion Ticket. Prices shown are Reward Flight Saver redemptions. Reward Flight Savers are British Airways’ best value Reward Flights. Reward Flight Saver offers customers great value flights with a low, flat fee to cover taxes, fees and carrier charges and a fixed Avios amount. To be eligible for Reward Flight Saver, you need to have collected at least one Avios in the past 12 months. If you are not eligible for Reward Flight Saver, you’ll be shown the standard Reward Flight price instead with full taxes, fees and charges. To find out more about Reward Flights and/or Reward Flight Saver, click here. At the time of publication, a standard Reward Flight booking or a standard Companion ticket booking (non-Reward Flight Saver) would be subject to taxes, fees, & carrier charges of approximately $870 return travel from Vancouver to London in economy class and approximately $1,900 per person based on business class travel. To make a booking, (including the Companion Ticket) Eligible Members must visit ba.com and log in using their membership number and PIN/Password. It is not possible to book a Reward Flight or a Companion Ticket by contacting a travel agent, or at the airport.
The Companion Award Voucher may be used for flights operated by British Airways only. Travel on franchise, codeshare or alliance airlines is not permitted. Return flights must be booked at the same time the outward journey is booked. All travel must originate in and return to Canada. Companion Vouchers can be used on a one way or return flight. Return flights must be booked at the same time the outward journey is booked. All travel must originate in and return to Canada.
A Companion Voucher can only be used if and when an Eligible Member is booking a Reward Flight using Avios and cannot be combined with any other offer, promotion, mileage or frequent flyer programme. Full details of fare rules can be found on ba.com. All Reward Flights and Companion Tickets are subject to availability and there is no guarantee Eligible Members will be able to book a flight for a companion on the Eligible Member’s choice of flight and destination. The Companion Voucher is only valid if it has been acquired in accordance with these Terms and Conditions.
A Companion Voucher is valid for twenty-four (24) months from the date it is issued and must be exchanged for a Companion Ticket with travel commencing from Canada before the expiry date on the Companion Voucher. Eligible Members must still have a Card in good standing at the time of travel. British Airways and/or Royal Bank of Canada reserve(s) the right to refuse to issue or to honour any Companion Voucher in the event that the Eligible Member is in breach of either these RBC British Airways Visa Infinite Companion Voucher Terms and Conditions, their RBC Royal Bank Credit Card Agreement or Executive Club Terms and Conditions.
A maximum of two Companion Vouchers can be redeemed at any one time on the same booking e.g.  Avios reward fares plus  Companion Voucher tickets.
The Companion Voucher is not extendable, refundable, transferable, and has no cash or mileage value. At no time may the Companion Voucher be purchased, sold, or bartered but if it is, any such Companion Voucher will become void. Companion Vouchers are applicable to new and future bookings only; they cannot be used to amend or pay for existing bookings.
The Companion Ticket is subject to the Executive Club Terms and Conditions relating to Companion Vouchers. If the Eligible Member cancels the Companion Ticket booking more than twenty-four (24) hours prior to the scheduled departure of the outbound flight from Canada, British Airways will redeposit the Companion Voucher which will only be valid for the remainder of its original twenty-four (24) month expiry period based on the original date of issue. Reward Flight bookings and Companion Tickets cancelled within twenty-four (24) hours of departure will result in the Companion Voucher and Avios being cancelled without any possibility of being reissued or credited to the Eligible Member.
