People looking to minimise the cost of their stag weekend or holiday abroad should look to avoid traditional "tourist traps", it has been claimed.
According to research from Hotels.com, more and more Brits are looking to save money on trips overseas by haggling over prices.
Cordy Griffiths, public relations manager at the website, said that people are still determined not to sacrifice their holidays as a result of the credit crunch, but are looking to make their money go further.
She suggested that tourists who are prepared to "negotiate some of the prices along the way" and look beyond the traditional tourist spots are likely to get the most for their money.
Ms Griffiths said this could even be as simple as securing cheaper food and drink, two of the fundamental ingredients for most stag parties.
"People should shop around ... a couple of streets down, you might find that the same meal may cost you less. It's worth being a bit more adventurous," she advised.
