Swedish term or phrase: Excess elimination and excess insurance
I am reviewing a document that was written by a native Swede. He is referring to "excess" as in "excess insurance" and "excess elimination", which I think is a UK term. I am pretty sure that he is referring to the "deductible" in the US which is the amount the insured has to pay. Am I right on this?

Excess cover
The travel insurance covers the excess that you may have on your home, car or business travel insurance, up to kr 2,000.

Excess elimination and interruption cover:
We take care of the excess if you have an accident!
If the car is damaged or stolen, you pay the excess charge on the spot.
When you get home, any damage report, the receipt for charges and the rental contract are sent in writing to

Yes, your instincts are correct. Excess in this context is the same as deductible.
