How to find the best of Stag Party Packages

If you’re asked to organise your friend’s stag do, then it is a huge honour and a big responsibility. Thankfully, there are plenty of brilliant packages to make the experience easy.

Organising a stag break should be fun, but it can also be quite difficult in terms of logistics and the amount of work involved. Packages, however, can make the whole experience easier. Each is tried and tested, and you’ll have the peace of mind that comes with a professional events and booking agency. Alternatively, you can have the fun of piecing together your own bespoke event, which is tailored entirely to the groom’s tastes.


The rates for a stag weekend can be budget-friendly if you book a package with a provider such as Red Seven. You will also find it cheaper than if you try to organise things separately. This is because professional bookers have access to better rates than people simply calling as customers. This can make a real difference with aspects such as accommodation, particularly where discounts can be negotiated for a group. However, it is also possible to organise good prices for different weekend elements by booking ahead, using screen scrapers, offers, vouchers and so forth ? think creatively.

Broad Availability

When you start to do your research you’ll find a huge range of diverse choices available. Have you ever thought of doing zorbing, going to a medieval banquet or even arranging for the groom to get ‘kidnapped’ in Eastern Europe? Stag and hen do organisers know which options, events and packages work best for their customers, and every option has been tried and tested so that you know your group will be satisfied. For individually organised trips, look for reader reviews, ratings and other feedback mechanisms, and speak to friends, families and contacts for their tips.


It’s bad enough trying to organise a weekend away for just yourself and a partner, but with a stag (or bachelor’s party, as they call it in the United States) you can end up with 10-40 people, and you may not actually know them all. Simply trying to make contact with everyone, organise consensus decisions, propose options and eventually collect payment can take up vast amounts of your time and patience. You may want to choose an events company to leave the administration behind and hand it over to your account manager. Alternatively, you can make the job far easier on yourself by planning ahead, getting help, avoiding last-minute dashes and taking copious notes.

Inspiration and Ideas

Look online and you’ll also be able to get plenty of inspiration and ideas. There are options here in the UK as well as abroad, and things to do to suit all interests. Traditional stag arrangements are catered for with pub crawls, nightclubbing and naughty weekends, and sporty groups will find everything from water sports to clay-pigeon shooting and assault courses to look forward to. You’ll be amazed at the diversity of the packages on offer, and even if you don’t find something that exactly suits your needs, there are various options for creating bespoke packages to suit your group’s unique wants and interests.

Ease of Booking the Stag Weekend

To make things easier, simply head online to browse the wide range of options available, filtering for location and group size as you wish, as well as accommodation grade preferences. You’ll be amazed at how simple it is to book and get the ball rolling for the stag’s ultimate last weekend of freedom.
