We always recommend you get some!
Now at the risk of sounding like your mum, it really is worth making sure you’re properly insured. It’s a stag do, there will be bravado, stag dares, guys egging each other on and those *I can’t look!* “Hold my beer and watch this!” moments of it’ll all end in tears stupidity. It’s the just what us men do.
A wise head will make sure you’re insured. It’s not just making sure you stay safe (especially important overseas where even the smallest of medical issues can rake up thousands of pounds in hospital bills) but being insured can also protect against getting caught out against natural disasters (we had a number of stag parties stranded by the Icelandic volcano, all happy they had insurance cover). It can also help protect against recent airline fiascos such as RyanAir’s cancelled flights and Monarch’s collapse.
StagWeb’s packages employ the highest professional codes of practice, our programmes cannot legislate for the unforeseen. That is why we strongly suggest you cover yourselves with adequate insurance. Always check the policy you have / are getting provides an acceptable level of cover for you.
If you're going abroad there are also international considerations, see our international tips. Importantly check if the policy covers you for all potential eventualities from delays, luggage, activities you are likely to do (some policies have exclusions despite their ambiguous advertising) etc. Also pay attention to the payment levels - some are more generous than others (for the same cost) and always check that your international policy covers repatriation.
