I've seen various translations of this: 'threshold', 'deductible'. I'd like to know whether the 'εκπιπτόμενο ποσό' corresponds to what is called the 'excess' in UK insurance terminology.

I think it is the fourth in the list of the first batch above

I have always called it a deductible, myself.

Thank you
Notes to answerer
Asker: Thank you. Isn't this simply a difference between US and UK terminology: the US 'deductible' is the UK 'excess'? It may be more complex than this - but, for example, one of your links says 'In the United Kingdom, Australia and some other parts of the world, an insurance deductible is referred to as an excess, but excesses and deductibles function in the same way.'
