UK stag weekend travel - stag weekend transport options in the UK
If you're arranging your stag weekend in the UK there are really only 3 things to consider:
(1) getting there in the first place
(2) getting to and from the stag activities
(3) getting around in the evening
We coordinate optimum programmes that are best suited, making the best use of your time and budget, we take care of all the details to ensure it's a hassle free, smooth passage. If and when required we'll arrange the transport, just tell us what you need.
In most cases you will be driving, in which case make sure you have the driving shared if possible and the best route planned. Try the RAC route planner for size at http://rp.rac.co.uk/routeplanner and if you still need a local map we recommend Streetmap or Multimap.
It might be an idea for you to club together and spring for hiring a minibus. It may work out as the cheapest way to travel. But bear in mind
(1) somebody’s got to collect it and return it
(2) somebody’s got to drive - and therefore be in good shape (3) it should be adequately insured and
(4) choose a reliable vehicle with breakdown cover included if possible. Also make sure you get a decent minibus hire deal, unlimited mileage, low excess, etc. We would recommend that you hire locally for best deals, check www.yell.co.uk for listings.
If you are a big group (20+), let us know, we’ll assist with arranging the best deals on coach hire. But if you want the coach/coaches for the whole weekend you’ll also have to pay for putting the driver up.
This is a popular method of transport for the stag weekend as it means you don’t have to take the wheel. Special offers run from time to time and if you book your train tickets, far enough in advance you will benefit either from special offers or “Apex” fares. Try the following links for best deals:
