Insurance / Travel insurance policy
Spanish term or phrase: franquicia vehículo/franquicia personas
This appears in a document detailing the terms and conditions of a travel insurance policy and the different items covered.


(It appears in the same section of the document as the policyholder details and the vehicle details. The vehicle details are blank as no particular vehicles seem to be being insured.)

Any ideas? Spanish from Spain for UK English. Thanks in advance.

It looks as if the insured cannot claim if the transport is less than 15km. In this case, "deductible" is fine.

agree  xxxcmwilliams: but isn't it 'excess' in the UK? That's what I usually see in travel insurance policies in the UK.

  -> You're probably right here. My impression is that "deductible" is taking over, particularly amongst insurance people, but "excess" is still probably more common in personal lines policies. and
