Yes, it's going to be a legendary weekend.

Yes, there will probably be a few drinks involved.

But (and at the risk of sounding like your mum) we want everyone to come home safe and sound.

In particular, we want the groom to back to his partner with no missing/extra: Eyebrows, Limbs, Bruises, Tattoos, Wives, etc....

So Here Are 10 Tips for Staying Safe on your Stag:

1 Drinking


It's a stag celebration - there will probably be some drinking involved.

But it's not a competition to see how much alcohol you can consume.

There are no extra points for being the drunkest guy sleeping through the party.

Always drink responsibly.

2 Peer Pressure

Some people don't drink. Some people drink less.

Does it make them less fun? No.

It makes them the sober ones who'll be filming all the fun.

Be nice to these guys, they have your reputation on their smartphones.

Never try and force anyone to drink more than they want.

3 Packing Your Bags


Baggage control and border agents are not known for their sense of humour.

Slipping a little something funny into the groom's luggage might seem like a really funny idea right up until the angry border officer asks you to bend over and touch your toes as your flight takes off without you.

4 Activities

Staying safe

'Rusty Dave's Discount Go Karting' might seem like a good way to save some cash, but it's probably not the most safety-conscious operation.

Always book your activities at a reputable site – a couple of extra quid will be better than making a trip to A&E.

Verified Suppliers!

At StagWeb, we will only send our groups to activities we would do ourselves.

5 Cash Smart

If a deal sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

If anyone offers to exchange your money at a great rate or offers you an outrageously good deal, then, chances are, it won't be real.

Always exchange cash at recognised outlets.

6 Splashing Their Cash

Always book through an ABTA-registered tour operator to ensure you have complete financial protection when spending everyone's hard-earned cash for them.

We are ABTA members!

So, you're certainly in safe hands with StagWeb.

7 Pickpockets

A boisterous group of guys that have had a little bit too much drink..? It's a pickpocket's dream.

Sadly, all major cities suffer from pickpockets, so keep your wits about you and your money secure.

Keeping your cash, wallets and phones in front pockets is one simple way of keeping your valuables safe.

Also, never take out more than you need.

8 Stick Together

A large group of lads. A few too many drinks. Sometimes it can feel like herding kittens (large, loud, flatulent kittens).

Keep the guys together at all times.

When overseas or near open water, it is particularly important to make sure all the guys are safe and together if they've been drinking.

9 Pre-Flight Drinks

All airlines have strict rules on passenger safety.

While a stag do might seem like a good excuse to have a couple of pints for breakfast, getting drunk before check-in is a great way to watch your flight take off without you.

If you're flying, save the drinks until you arrive at your destination.

The same rules apply for your return flight.
