Stag parties 'could cut costs by heading abroad'

Some prospective grooms may have resigned themselves to a cut-price stag weekend in the UK this year, but revellers could still bag a bargain overseas trip, one expert has claimed.

Alistair Daly, marketing director at online travel firm On the Beach, said British tourists should not be put off venturing abroad, despite the weakness of the pound.

Indeed, he suggested a short break in Europe could still prove cheaper than one in the UK, meaning stag night revellers could get more booze for their bucks by heading to foreign soil.

Mr Daly said: "Although the British pound has weakened against the euro, in-resort costs such as food and drink, excursions and activities are generally cheaper than in the UK."

Furthermore, while prices over here have largely stayed the same, tour operators and hoteliers across Europe have recognised the need to drop prices in order to attract Brits during the current climate, he added.

According to recent research by Post Office Travel Insurance, 60 per cent of UK tourists still plan to jet off overseas this year, despite the effects of the recession.ADNFCR-2122-ID-19274232-ADNFCR
