Why Book Your Stag Do Early?

Image
Don't leave your best friend's most important weekend of his life to the very last minute, start arranging his stag do now!

There are many reasons why you should book your stag do or weekend early and luckily I am about to list them.

Price
In some instances in travel, booking late can make your holiday cheaper, such as a last minute week to Salou (Costa Brava) however, when booking a stag group you are usually confined to dates and this is usually over a weekend.

So if you're booking a stag do abroad the earlier you book the flights the cheaper they are going to be, if you're staying in the UK booking a large group into a hotel can be tricky especially on popular weekends, booking early you'll get the cheapest flights and the best hotels.



More Choice
Booking your stag do early will give you a lot more choice as the availability will usually be there, so that means getting the best hotels, flight times, activity times and nightlife.

When booking late there has some b…

Dream Stag Weekends Abroad (If Money Was No Object)

Image
For me, there are two destinations in the world which every stag party must visit if you have the dollar, and that's Las Vegas, USA and Bangkok, Thailand, OK, OK, it's starting to turn into a Hangover movie, but they have featured the best places in the world to party so it makes sense?

Private Jet to these destinations would be a bit of a nightmare as you'd be stopping every 3 hours to refuel, so assume it's business class with beds, bar and incredible food.

Top Tip: Book Emirates (Thailand) or Virgin (Las Vegas) for a in-flight stand up bar experience.

Las Vegas First and foremost Las Vegas just never sleeps and has the best pool parties in the day and incredible nightlife by umm night, so is a stag do heaven.

Dream Stag Weekends In The UK (If Money Was No Object)

Image
We all love a dream list, if money was no object type of scenario.
I'm sure you've won the lottery in your head and worked out where that £30 million would go, we all have, so I have put together some dream stag weekends which after looking into to it isn't as expensive as I thought it would be! Party In Style The Royal Mile, Grassmarkets, The West End and also the streets off Princes street all have fantastic bars, pubs, clubs and restaurants making Edinburgh one of the best places to party in the UK.
First of all you'll need to fly into Edinburgh, which would be more desirable than sitting on the M1 in queues of traffic. If you have a group of 8 or less hire a Learjet and fly into Edinburgh in real style in your own private jet.
You'll need to arrive early morning into Edinburgh airport sop you can be whisked off to the highlands (roughly, hour and a half) in an executive coach which has a waitress, kitchen, toilet and an incredible sound system.
You will then get…

Stag Do Hacks

Image
Life hacks are all the rage these days; from lifting ink stains with WD-40 to making a family sized trampoline with tarpaulin and elastic bands (I made that one up), so let's check out some stag do hacks which will actually help you organise a brilliant stag weekend.
Organising Communication
Set up a WhatsApp group and communicate with the attendees, that way you'll get the general consensus of what they are willing to pay and where they want to go.

Don't allow your inbox to become a snub-machine gun target by your group snubbing the stag weekend you've organised - always communicate with as many people as possible gauging budgets, destinations and activities the group will want. That way you'll organise a stag do your group wants.
Beat dirty airline tricks If you're in charge of booking the flights for the group or even some of the group, some if not all airlines will know what you are searching for and can sneakily put their prices up when you go back to book i…
