What started as a few drinks down the pub has become epic holidays abroad
with matching fits and pricey hotel stays. The modern stag and hen do require that your
linen shorts have very, very deep pockets. Luckily, Joe's here to show how you can
save some money and still have an unforgettable getaway.

Before you join the group chat

Be realistic. It’s really easy to get carried away once you’re signed up. And we get it, going away with your mates is a guaranteed good time. It’s also guaranteed to cost you a fair whack of money. The average cost — per person — can be up to £1500 for a do abroad.

Set some limits on what you’re willing to spend. If it means you have to miss out on one or two pre-planned activities then that’s cool. If they’re really your mates they’ll understand.

Barcelona, Berlin, Santorini, Rome and Lake Como offer beautiful scenery, cool nightlife and plenty of culture for even the most discerning do-goers. Here’s what a typical trip in each will set you back.
