Whether you are planning a stag weekend or are looking to go away for the weekend for your 21st birthday one thing is for sure; you want to make it a weekend to remember. Nevertheless, the only issue is that not everybody has the money to fund the elaborate celebratory plans they have in mind. But this doesn’t mean you should have to scale down your ideas. You simply have to find a way of achieving a fantastic weekend that won’t break everyone’s bank balance.
Stay in Your Own Country
You don’t have to go abroad to have a memorable party weekend. For example, of you’re a Brit; there are plenty of fantastic places all over the UK that can provide you with a celebration that is just as good – if not better. Why not head into the big city itself and have a lavish celebration in London? Or, what about humble old Newcastle up in the north-east? Newcastle is widely considered to be the best place to go for hen dos and stag weekends. And that is without even mentioning Brighton, Cardiff, Nottingham, Birmingham, Liverpool, Newquay, Manchester and Glasgow.
Book in advance
The craze for booking accommodation and travel last minute seems to have worn off and as sexy as it seems on paper – doing this can upset your bank balance and also damage your piece of mind. The longer you leave train and air tickets the more expensive they seem to be. Not only this, but you won’t benefit from leaving accommodation until the last minute either. All that will happen is the hotels will become booked up and those that do have spaces left will put their prices up. If you book in advance not only do you reap the rewards of a better deal but you give all your friends time to pay the weekend trip away off.
Have a few drinks in your hotel before you go out for the night. Get some alcohol from the nearest supermarket and have a couple in the hotel room to get the party started. This will save everybody money when they are out because they won’t need to buy as many drinks. Pre-drinking is becoming somewhat of a phenomenon in the UK. It is a great way to save money but it is definitely recommended to be sensible with the amount you consume.
Look for club deals
Have a look on the internet and see if any clubs or bars are doing deals. In order to survive in the modern day even the most popular clubs offer deals in order to entice their customers, such as a fee drink upon entry. By doing a bit of research before you go you can definitely save money on your actual night out.
Research restaurants online
Nowadays most restaurants have their own website whereby they post their menu. You will be able to hunt down the most affordable restaurants in the area. It is always recommended to book a table in advance anyway as most restaurants tend to be busy during the weekend. Nonetheless, if you look at the menu before you don’t run the risk of any nasty surprises once the bill comes in.
If you use the five tips provided in this article then you should have no trouble planning a cheap yet memorable weekend away. You and friends can have a weekend you will be laughing and smiling about for a long time without breaking the bank.
