When Should I Start Booking My Hen & Stag Weekend

The best destinations are always busy in the world of hen and stag parties. Hotels, flights and activities always see groups of bidding men and women for the best and most desirable pieces to make up the perfect weekend. This leaves limited space for last minute bookings. But when exactly should you start booking for your hen/stag weekend?


All cases are different; it all depends on what activities you would like to do, where you want to stay and for how long. Your best bet is to enquire as soon as possible, after that, we can tell you exactly when you need to book. And well, if we think you have already left it late, we will use our trusted connections to obtain rooms and activities that will equally satisfy you for your hen or stag weekend.

If you have booked flights, check your booking conditions, and if you are putting down a per person deposit; first collect the money from your mates before putting down any of your own cash. That way you won’t have to worry about cancellations.

We find the earlier you book your hen or stag do the better, there are so many reasons why:

When booking for a large group, hotel rooms may not all be available at your desired hotel. Splitting your group over several hotels will instil a separated attitude from the beginning which isn’t very good when trying to bring a group of friends together.

Activity sites can only take so many people on a busy day, and Saturdays when most of the stag and hen dos want to play, is the busiest day of the week, so it’s best to fill the slot before it’s full.

Just knowing you have sorted your best mates most important weekend without having to break sweat will show that you are taking your role ad brides maid or best man seriously. And it also leaves you time to enjoy the whole experience with your mates, instead of worrying that you have thought of everything.

People can put the weekend date into their diaries, giving them plenty of notice to book time off work and get baby sitters.

Booking early gives you plenty of opportunity to fully look into your stag do destination, and arrange lot more fun things to do to make the whole weekend jam packed with excitement.


So we hope you are already booking your stag/hen do for the summer months as you can only count on your first choices to be free for a little while longer. Need help? Contact us on 0800 210 0643.
