When do I need to notify a claim?

What is the “deductible” or “excess”? How it is applied?

It is simply the amount that you are expected to bear in the event of a claim. If you had a claim of USD 100 under the Emergency dental care (Traveller plan), AXA Mansard will only pay you USD 30 because there is a policy excess of USD 70 that would be borne by you.
