The UK’s original Stag and Hen party travel company, Red7, releases 2018-19 Hen and Stag Party Statistics. Red7 has three decades’ expertise in group travel and is widely respected as one of the UK’s leading hen and stag companies.
Our Hen and Stag Party Statistics show that the top destination for Hens and Stags was Portugal, mainly the sun-drenched Algarve resort, Albufeira. Great prices have attracted more Hens and Stags than any other destination or country, with it’s golden beaches, warm seas and vibrant nightlife.
Unsurprisingly, the stags also head to Eastern Europe in significant numbers, with Prague taking the number two spot. Hens are seeking the VIP beach club life in Marbella and Ibiza, where private, luxury villas are in high demand.
UK hen and stag party group sizes are closely comparable, but the lads spend, on average, 12% more than the girls. When it comes to overseas stag parties, the group size variance widens, with 15 lads travelling vs 12.3 girls (a variance of 22%).
Brexit and uncertainty in the Travel Industry hasn’t put people off travelling overseas, with 64% still opting to celebrate their bestie’s big send off abroad.
The most popular activity continues to be the good old guided bar crawl, with an increasing trend for Villas and Party Houses, resulting in a small decline in demand for hotel accommodation.
