Oct 6, 2019 #Entertainment

Alpha Travel Insurance have ranked Europe’s top Stag and Hen party destinations and indexed them based on factors including the cost of flights and hotel, the cost of a pint and the number of bars and activities available to find out which city comes out on top. 

Stag and Hen parties are now much bigger affairs than a night out at a local nightclub, with many opting for a long weekend in a bustling European location to celebrate the end of their singledom. Alpha Travel Insurance has analysed Europe’s top destinations on all the important cost factors to find out which one offers the best value without compromising on experience. Here, we’ll show you which of these top destinations you can fly to, direct from North East airports.

Take a look here to find the perfect destination for your Stag or Hen party.

Cheapest for flights

When it comes to Stag and Hen parties, the journey is often part of the fun but blowing most of your budget on flights isn’t always the way to go. For people looking to keep travel costs down, Dublin, Ireland, is a great option, where the average cost of return flights is just £51 and you can fly direct from Newcastle International. 

Best for bars

If budgets are a little more generous and having a bigger choice of bars is your priority then Rome, Italy, is a great option. Fly direct from Newcastle International to Rome – Leonardo da Vinci International Airport. With an impressive 400 bars on offer, you’ll be spoilt for choice. But with the average cost of a pint coming in at £2.24 and flights and hotel costing around £615 for a two-night stay, Rome is one of the more extravagant options.

Best for activities

For those looking for a more action-packed Stag or Hen party Barcelona, Spain, is a great choice, with direct flights from Newcastle International. Barcelona boasts 445 outdoor activities to keep you entertained including bike tours, boat trips and even hot air balloon rides and horseback riding.

Rachel Conaghan, Travel Expert at Alpha Travel Insurance, comments:

“No two Stag or Hen parties are the same but what they all have in common is that people want to spend them with their nearest and dearest and that often means asking your friends and family to contribute towards to the cost of the trip.

With many group holidays, varying budgets can be a major stumbling block so finding a budget-friendly destination that still promises an unforgettable experience is the easiest way to make sure your Stag or Hen party is the amazing celebration it should be.”
