Think of the money. Of course price is always going to be a factor, when booking any kind of group weekend you instantly become responsible for the fate of everyone’s hard earned dollar.

Booking with an ABTA approved company means everyone’s cash is protected and the company you'll be dealing with meets their high requirements and codes of practise.
Timing is another critical factor. Too many stag parties fail purely on the grounds that the main man didn’t get booking until too late to get the best deals and secure the best activities.
