2013 Looks to be another busy year in the hen and stag do world and with hotels, flights and activity sites having limited accommodation on busy weekends booking early is great advice.


Will I get penalised if people drop out?

"Shish, that's another great question, you're on fire today"!

This depends on what type of stag do you have booked and where you have booked it. If you book your stag do through DesignaVenture all UK bookings and bookings abroad without flights, you can reduce your numbers up until 4 weeks before you go*.
