Alpine insurance. : LUSENET : Mountaineering : One Thread

After climbing Mont Blanc last year with a group ( dom de gouter route), I am returning to Chamonix this summer with friends, to practice ice-climbing and glacier technique, and try some easy routes on the Mont Blanc range. Do we need insurance for search and rescue? If so, what is the best way to go about obtaining a suitable policy?

As I wrote in the general info file, rescue is free in france (or at least it used to be six years ago).
