Bus/Financial - Insurance / Insurance
French term or phrase: garantie
In a schedule of insurance:
I have included the whole context below, but it is the final section that is causing me a problem.
Have used 'cover' for 'garantie' elsewhere in the document, but not sure what do when it appears in the plural.

FRANCHISE D'AVARIES

Somme fixe et/ou fraction d'un dommage garanti que l'Assuré conserve toujours à sa charge sur le coût d'un sinistre, étant précisé que :

* l'ensemble des réclamations relatives aux dommages ou événements domma-geables résultant d'un même fait générateur constituera un seul sinistre et, par conséquent, l'Assureur n'appliquera qu'une seule franchise.

* dans l'hypothèse où un sinistre de responsabilité mettrait en jeu plusieurs GARANTIES donnant lieu à plusieurs franchises, l'Assureur ne prendra en considération que la franchise la plus élevée afférente à ces garanties

agree  lenkl: in the US; "cover" in the UK, I believe; it's correct but difficult to use in the asker's sentence, so that "compensation" or "indemnities" may be more appropriate here.

garantie (in this context)
type of cover


Explanation:
I've already agreed with Abdellatif's answer, which I think is the best term, but if you prefer something a little less "formal" for some reason, then in this context, "type of cover" could be an alternative.
Something like "if a claim involves more than one type of cover and therefore more than one excess (or however you decide to translate franchise), the Insurer will only..." etc.

But that is a kind of "Campaign For Clear English" type of version and may not be entirely appropriate to your needs!
In which case, go with Insured Risk.
