DesignaVenture Over Christmas 2013

Tuesday, December 24th, 2013

People of Britain, DesignaVenture is going to be closed during the week of Christmas.

We are doing this to give our hard working team a well earned break, and we also like to party hard!

So, from about noon on Christmas eve the whole team will be having lunch and a drink in the local boozer and shutting shop until the 02nd January 2014.

That basically means on the 02nd January 2014 we will be open from 9am as usual, we will be expecting a massive PHEW resounding around the country with the relief that the best stag and hen tour operator is open again.

“What can we do if we want some questions answering, or if we want to book something?”

Don’t panic, most companies in this market are also closed so no real work can be done within the Christmas week, so the best thing to do is to drop us an email or simply book on line and we will get back to you on the 02nd January 2014, sharp!

Mobility Scooter Crackdown By Police in Benidorm

Tuesday, November 19th, 2013

According to a story on the Mirror online, the police are going to crackdown on stag parties hiring Mobility Scooters.

This trend first started after the ITV hit show Benidorm, shows Madge travelling around on these infamous electric vehicles.

New laws which will come into place this month, include all Scooters must be registered with the local council and you will only be allowed to hire one of these vehicles if you are over 55 or have a disability certificate or a doctor’s note.

Drink drive and misuse of these vehicles could also mean a fine.

So an end to this Stag Do craze is probably around the corner.

Just a quick note to level out the finger of blame:

Stag Parties where / are being approached when arriving at Alicante airport, so businesses in Benidorm have focused on Stags to make money.

    Best UK Stag Destinations This Winter

    Sunday, October 13th, 2013

    Winter really is on it’s way, with the temperatures plummeting and the rain falling, is this such a great time to have a Stag Do?

    First of all, hell yes! Winter is a great time to do some amazing activities where the old saying of the muddier, the better is used.

    Around November, December you have the Christmas party season, so the nightlife is kicking and if you are looking to go in January or February, then it will give you something to look forward to after New Year’s.

    But where should you go?

    Don’t plan a stag destination too far from home, a latest survey run by DesignaVenture showed that the majority of groups in the winter months (November to February) chose to celebrate their stag destination 2 – 3 hours drive from their home.

    So I would recommend Bristol, Nottingham, Bournemouth and Reading, they all have great motorway and dual carriageway connections which don’t tend to close should the weather decide to cover us in snow.

    These fantastic lively stag destinations have amazing nightlife and some pretty cool activities and out of season you can bag yourself a bargain.

    Take a look at our stag do special offers page, which has some corking out of season packages and great prices.

    A Solicitor’s Sober Stag Do

    Wednesday, September 25th, 2013

    In October a friend of a pint or two Paul Booty, a solicitor from Bury St Edmunds, will be having a very sober Stag Do.

    According to the Bury Free Press, he has signed up for the Go Sober For October campaign, a month long charity event raising money for The Macmillan Cancer Trust.

    Unfortunately as he has booked his stag do for October, he will have to stay sober for the whole stag event, maybe becoming the designated driver!

    According to this article, there is temptation everywhere for Paul, as he has also won his own weight in Greene King Beer, which will arrive in October!

    We salute this guy, the Go Sober for October campaign is a great cause and all the money raised goes towards something very worthwhile, the Macmillan Cancer Trust.

    So we wish him all the luck in the world with his sober Stag Do mission and if you would like further details on this campaign go to the official website,
