Advice On Booking A Stag Do Last Minute
Whether it’s a shot-gun wedding, the best man is totally rubbish or the groom last-minute, has decided he actually wants a stag do, booking a stag night or weekend last-minute can be tricky.
You have availability and people to sort in a very short amount of time, it ain't going to be easy.
Get your lap top out and get going, time is of the essence.
First things first, you need a confirmed date and a list of party members who are ready to pay right away – no messing.
Set up a WhatsApp group, it's so easy and whilst you'll be getting answers and ideas from the stag group there's always a bit of time for friendly banter.
Be flexible, if you can’t get the activities you want, be open to other ideas as you are still going away with your pals and you know you’ll have loads of fun.
This can also be a similar story for your chosen stag or hen destination. For example if you choose Bristol and it’s the weekend of the Balloon festival you are going to struggle finding a decent hotel so have several destinations in mind.
Do not pay for people who say “yes" and are likely to back out, you know your friends and know who you can and can’t trust. Paying for people last minute will inevitably mean you will loose money if they back out, if they’re serious about coming they will pay, simple.
Want to go abroad but don’t have loads of Dollar? Check out skyscanner, you can put in any airport or even just the ‘UK' and it will bring up loads of flights from various UK airports to your chosen destination, you may get a real bargain.
If all this seems like to much hassle, make life easier and book through a hen / stag tour operator like DesignaVenture who can help you get out of a Last Minute hole. They will have up to the minute availability at your chosen destination/s as well as giving you thousands of ideas.
Another fantastic pro when booking through a stag / hen agency is you can get members of the group to pay individually directly to the company, that’s going to be a hell of a lot easier then chasing everyone for money for the hotel, then the nightclubs, and then the activities, phew what a palaver!
