March 12 Update: Aeroplan to allow changes or cancel for full refund for March/April travel, Earn 5x CIBC Rewards Points for Air Transat Europe flights & a Hertz Elite Status Match offer

As of yesterday Aeroplan‘s Coronavirus policy was
set in line with Air Canada’s. If you have Aeroplan flights booked for
travel in March and April you can change them once or cancel for them a
full refund. This could also explain why the Aeroplan website is down
and from what I can see on Twitter there are very long wait times when
you call in. It does appear that contacint them via Twitter may be the
best course of action if you want to change or cancel. At least if you
try and don’t get a response you have an electronic record of you doing
so! Thanks to long time Rewards Canada reader Kevin A.  for the details!

We have reached out to AIR MILES to see what their course of action is
going to be as right now they are stating they are following to policies
of the airlines – which should mean that if you have an Air Canada or
WestJet flight booked with AIR MILES you should be able to change those
flights at no cost. Still would be nice to see a no charge cancellation policy in place
like Aeroplan’s!

If you are willing to try to book travel to Europe for late spring/early summer or late summer/early fall and are a CIBC Aventura cardholder you can earn 5x CIBC Rewards
Points when you book Air Transat flights via CIBC Rewards. This offer
runs until March 31 and the good news is Air Transat has a liberal no change fee policy
for flights that are also booked by that date! So if you want to score
extra points, get in on some cheaper fares this may be the time do it!

If you hold elite status in the Avis, Enterprise or National car rental progams you can have that status matched by Hertz Gold Plus Rewards! Find out more here.
