Aventura Airline Rewards Chart
Using the Aventura Airline Rewards Chart to redeem your Aventura Points will give you the best value of around 2.3 cents per point. The chart is broken up by flight distance in which each option requires a certain amount of points up to a maximum ticket price. Do note that the maximum ticket price is before taxes, fees, and other charges.
|Type of Flight||Points Needed||Max Ticket Price|
|Short Haul Canada & U.S.||10,000 to 20,000||$400|
|Long Haul Canada & U.S.||25,000 to 35,000||$800|
|Mexico, Alaska, Hawaii, Central America, Caribbean||40,000 to 60,000||$1,000|

The values you can get from redeeming your points using the Aventura Airline Rewards Chart will heavily vary. The sections below break down the value of each option based on the maximum points required and the max ticket price.
Short-haul redemptions will cost you between 10,000 and 20,000 Aventura Points for up to a max ticket price of $400. These are flights within a province, territory or U.S. state to an adjoining province, territory or U.S. state. At the max ticket price, you're looking at a point value of 2 cents which is pretty good.
Long-haul redemptions will cost you between 25,000 and 35,000 Aventura Points for up to a max ticket price of $800. These are flights from any location in Canada or U.S. to any location in Canada or U.S. (except Hawaii and Alaska). This redemption options gives you the best value of 2.3 cents each and is what I would consider the sweet spot for redeeming your Aventura Points.
North/Central America, Caribbean
Flights from any location in Canada or U.S. to Mexico, Hawaii, Alaska, Bermuda, Central America, or Caribbean will cost you between 40,000 to 60,000 Aventura Points for up to a max ticket price of $1,000. This gives you a value of 1.66 cents per point which is still a solid redemption option.
Flights from a major gateway in Canada or U.S. to select destinations in Europe will cost you between 50,000 to 70,000 Aventura Points for up to a max ticket price of $1,300. This gives you a value of 1.85 cents per point which is another great option for getting great value out of your points.
Rest of the World
Flying from a major gateway in Canada or U.S. to select destinations in Africa, Asia, Australia, New Zealand, South Pacific, Middle East, or South America will cost you between 75,000 to 125,000 Aventura Points for up to a max ticket price of $2,000. This gives you a value of 1.6 cents per point which is the lowest of these redemptions, but still better than all redemptions that do not utilize the Aventura Airlines Rewards Chart.
Short On Points?
If you're short on points, you can use your Aventura Card to handle the rest. $1 is equal to 100 Aventura Points when booking your award flight. So if you were 1,000 points shy of your redemption, you could dish out $10 to make up for the shortage. This is equal to buying Aventura Points at the rate of 1 cent each.
Other redemptions not related to the Aventura Airline Rewards Chart will give your points 1 cent and lower in value. This consists of redeeming your points towards other forms of travel, financial products, gift cards, and statement credits. These options are detailed below.
Other Forms of Travel
Redeeming your Aventura Points for other forms of travel will give your points 1 cent in value. Charity redemptions aside, the is the best value you can obtain when you're not using the Aventura Airline Rewards Chart. Other forms of travel includes (but is not limited to:
- Car Rentals
- Vacation Packages
Do note that you can also redeem your Aventura Points at a value of 1 cents each towards the left over taxes and fees when using the Aventura Airline Rewards Chart. If you plan on using the chart, I recommend paying for the taxes/fees in cash and saving your points for future airline redemptions since you can get significantly better value.
CIBC Financial Products
Aventura Rewards Points can be redeemed towards financial products that you have with CIBC for a value of 0.83 cents per point. Redeeming 12,000 Aventura Points will give you $100 towards various financial products. Those financial products include:
- Line of Credit
Aventura Points can be applied towards merchandise in the CIBC Rewards portal. The value you get from the portal will heavily vary depending on the item and the retail cost. If you want to calculate the value of your points when redeeming them on the portal, you can use the Points & Miles Cash Value Calculator if you know the cost in points and the cost in cash (plus taxes/fees). Generally, I would avoid using Aventura Points towards merchandise as they points are primarily for travel. If you're looking to cash out on merchandise, you'll want to steer towards cash back credit cards.
Aventura Points can be redeemed for gift cards starting at 3,500 points for a $25 gift card which will give you 0.71 cents per point in value. Gift cards are located in the same CIBC Rewards Portal as merchandise. The best way to find all of the available gift cards is by finding one gift card, clicking on it and then clicking on the 'Gift Card' option in breadcrumbs link. There's more than 60 options to choose from which includes:
- Apple iTunes
- Bass Pro Shops

- Best Buy
- Canadian Tire
- Hudson Bay
- MAC Cosmetics
- Shoppers Drug Mart
- Uber Eats
The gift card denominations will vary and every denomination will not be available for every card listed.
Aventura Points can be used to pay off your credit card bill, but at a low value of 0.625 cents per point since it will cost you 4,000 points for a $25 statement. This is one of the lowest redemption values outside of redeeming for merchandise so you'll want to try to avoid this option if possible.
Aventura Points can be redeemed for great value which makes it a solid rewards program for those who love to travel. If you're looking to earn rewards that offer exceptional value when redeemed for airfare, you'll want to consider the Aventura Rewards program.
