16 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, visit the Agreements and Insurance page and review the insurance certificate(s) in your card package. Some insurance coverage(s) require purchases, auto rentals, common carrier fares, hotel or motel and other trip costs to be charged to the card and be for business purposes 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 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.

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. Trip Cancellation and Trip Interruption Insurance may not cover certain pre-existing health and medical conditions. Certain RSA coverages are "excess insurance" (all other sources of insurance and recovery must be exhausted before coverage is available).
