VIA Préférence Program

Via Préférence

Earn more every time you travel

Earning VIA Préférence points has never been easier. Watch your points pile up with every ticket and travel pass purchased—plus, earn on fees for baggage, travelling with your pet, and more!

Earn 1, 2 or 3 points per dollar spent

Préférence level members earn 1 point per dollar spent on eligible products, before taxes. The higher your tier, the faster you accumulate points: Privilège members earn 2 points per dollar spent and Premier members, 3 points. And remember—points are earned by the member who travels, no matter who paid for the trip.
