Stag do overseas 'could prove cheaper than a UK break'

15 Apr 2009

People planning a stag do in the coming months might already have discounted a trip to Europe as the pound continues to plummet against foreign currencies, but some may be tempted to reconsider.

According to research by, a trip to the continent could ultimately prove less expensive than staying in the UK, with a number of "great deals" still available.

The study found that hotel rooms in eurozone destinations such as Barcelona, Berlin and Krakow could also be snapped up for less than £100 a night despite the unfavourable exchange rate.

In comparison, those planning a raucous stag night out in London would have to shell out an average of £111 to stay the night in a hotel, while a room in Bath could cost almost £120.

Director of communications for Alison Couper said: "By shopping around for the best deal, travellers can make significant savings, even when the price of flights is taken into consideration."

The findings support the view of Sian Williams, country manager UK for travel portal trivago, who recently claimed that there are still some great deals around on city-break trips to European cities like Rome and Barcelona.ADNFCR-2122-ID-19121647-ADNFCR
