Book A Stag Do Abroad The Right Way
|Book A Stag Do|
But hey chill your boots a minute, do it properly, read on, and don't have any mishaps whilst on Jonny foreigner's land.
First things first, how are you going to get there?
Obviously depending on where you are going, most stag groups fly, taking advantage of the plentiful routes and offers from our supposedly low cost airlines.
Now I said supposedly as there are a few pointers you need to know before you book your stag party onto a flight.
In a word, CHARGES!
Most low cost airlines charge you extra for everything including; hold luggage, if you want to pay by debit card, or by credit card, to book your seats, to check in at the airport, some have even mentioned charging for the use of the toilet onboard, but I expect that was just a publicity stunt.
Most airlines fares are usually non refundable and non changeable which basically means firstly; if someone drops out they have lost their money and secondly; if you want to change the name of that person to another likely lad, it won't be free and expect to pay quite a bit.
So before you book your flights make sure you have the correct money from the guys, you don't want to be paying for anyone you do not know or trust.
Alternatively, book with a stag do company such as DesignaVenture (that's us by the way), who will take care of it all with just a small fee, even checking you in before you go*.
After you have booked the flights, before you travel you will need to supply the airline with everyone's passport details, this includes:
Then you have your accommodation, nights out, activities, airport transfers etc.
My recommendation again is to book your stag do abroad with a stag do company such as DesignaVenture. So if anything does go wrong you have a 24 hour assistance number, to call and get things sorted.
It will also mean you will have the options for escorted bar crawls (book for your first night, so you know where to go for the rest of the weekend), good central stag friendly hotels, fantastic activities and airport transfers.
However, if you do decide to go it alone, make sure you have all your confirmations in writing from the hotel and activity sites and most importantly take them with you. Also, make sure you take the name and spelling of the person you have booked it with.
I don't want to be preaching to the choir but you will be surprised the amount of groups who arrive at a hotel to be told "you are not booked in"!
Whilst on your stag do abroad, make sure you are aware of any laws that may effect your celebrations. Some countries don't like the way us Brits get up to whilst celebrating, thinking we tend to go over the top and become loud, in the UK it's tolerated, and in some countries it's not, so be careful.
