What are the Extended Protection benefits on my CIBC card?

The Extended Protection benefit provides cardholders with an extension to the term of the original manufacturer’s warranty.

This extension is up to a maximum of one additional full year (two additional years for the CIBC Aerogold® Visa Infinite Privilege Card), commencing at the expiry of the manufacturer’s original warranty term.

Please note, the manufacturer's warranty must be honoured in Canada or the U.S, and items must be charged to your eligible CIBC card.

What are the Purchase Security benefits on my CIBC card?

The Purchase Security benefit provides worldwide coverage in the event of loss, theft or damage of qualified purchases charged to an eligible CIBC card.

If the item is stolen or damaged it may be replaced or repaired, or we may reimburse you up to the original cost of the item.

All insurance coverage is subject to the terms and conditions of their respective master policies. Certain limitations, exclusions and restrictions apply. Please read your Certificate of Insurance carefully.

Insurance coverage(s) included with CIBC credit cards are underwritten by Royal & Sun Alliance Insurance Company of Canada (RSA). Different cards will have different coverage(s). To learn about which coverage(s) are included with a specific card, and important information regarding coverage eligibility requirements, benefits, limitations and exclusions, see our Agreements and Insurance page and the insurance certificate(s) in your card package. Some insurance coverage(s) require purchase(s), auto rentals, common carrier fares and other trip costs to be charged to the card to activate coverage. Other conditions may also apply. Auto Rental Collision and Loss Damage Insurance (CLDI) is available for automobile rentals of up to 48 days for rental vehicles with a MSRP up to $65,000 (the CIBC Aerogold® Visa Infinite Privilege Card covers rental vehicles with a MSRP up to $85,000). The full cost of the rental must be charged to the card and the rental agency’s Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) or Loss Damage Waiver (LDW) must be declined. CLDI provides coverage up to the actual cash value (ACV) of the rental vehicle as defined in your insurance certificate. Note that some rental agencies may assess their damages at an amount greater than the ACV of the rental vehicle and you may be liable to them for the difference. Before declining the rental agency’s CDW or LDW, you should read carefully and compare the terms of the rental agreement, the CLDI insurance certificate in your card package and any other insurance you own to decide which coverage best meets your protection needs. For the CIBC Aventura Infinite Visa card, CIBC Aventura World MasterCard or CIBC Aventura World Elite MasterCard, Out-of-Province Emergency Travel Medical Insurance (TMI) covers the primary cardholder, their spouse and dependent children for the first 15 days of a trip if the insured person is age 64 or under, or for the first 3 days of a trip if the insured person is age 65 or older. Dependent children must be under 21 years of age or under 25 years of age if a full-time student, unless they have a permanent physical or mental impairment. TMI, Trip Cancellation and Trip Interruption Insurance may not cover certain pre-existing health/medical conditions. Certain RSA coverages are “excess insurance” (all other sources of insurance and recovery must be exhausted before coverage is available). For more information, call RSA toll-free at 1 866 363 3338 in Canada or the United States or collect from elsewhere at + 905 403 3338.
