Stag night revellers planning an overseas jaunt this summer are being urged to brush up on local customs and traditions before they hit the clubs at their chosen resort.
Bob Atkinson, travel expert at price comparison site travelsupermarket.com, said stag parties must be aware of certain laws in foreign countries to ensure their weekend passes off without unwanted incident.
For example, he warned that even simple actions such as consuming alcohol in the street can be illegal in some regions, meaning revellers will have to confine their drinking to the pubs and clubs to avoid running into trouble with the law.
Mr Atkinson said: "Remember that you are going on holiday to remember for the right reasons and not for the wrong reasons."
His comments came after research from travelsupermarket.com revealed that nine per cent of Brits admit to having a lack of knowledge of local laws and customs while on holiday.
Meanwhile, a third of respondents said they would be more likely to take risks on holiday abroad and do things they would not usually do at home.
