You, your spouse and dependent children are covered by trip cancellation insurance for up to $1,500(previously limited to $1,000) per trip for each insured person, up to a maximum of $5,000 per trip for all insured persons, if you pay for your trip with your eligible Aventura Card.

Bottom Line

So it’s a great day for some CIBC cardholders! It’s always interesting and appreciated to see a credit card issuer adding benefits… rather than taking them away! All information related to these new benefits and questions and answers are available on this CIBC page.
