£30 Get’s It Booked

Whether you’re booking an activity break for a 30th Birthday party or celebrating a stag do or hen party, booking your weekend couldn’t be easier with DesignaVenture because all we need is a single £30 deposit.

After that, you can then collect a £30 per person deposit off everyone or get your group to pay us directly with confidence knowing your stag weekend, hen party or activity day is booked and no one else can get the grubby hands on it.

Usually the per person deposits are due 2 weeks later after the booking date, however if you’re booking late or within about 8 weeks before departure a per person deposit won’t be due at all, just your final balance and guaranteed minimum numbers 5 weeks before you go.

Check out our How To Book page for further details on how to book, alternatively we also have a Frequently Asked Questions page.

If you have lots of questions or would rather speak to a human, (we feel it’s best to chat it out) so call us on 01432 830000 we are ALWAYS happy to help.

Is Your Passport Brexit Ready?

If you are not aware and you’ve been hiding under a stone, Brexit is meant to happen this year on the 29th March 2019. Currently our Government and the European Union haven’t agreed on a deal yet….

So what does that mean to you and your hen or stag do travelling to the EU?

That’s a very good question the only thing you need to check is your British Passport, according to this article on the Telegraph’s website, providing you have at least 6 months validity on your passport on the day of travel you have nothing to worry about.

Bear in mind that if you have a passport which is valid for more than 10 years, those extra days do not count – there is also a statement on the home office website about this, and a passport checker which tells you if your passport will be OK to travel to the European union after Brexit.

Please do not hesitate to contact us should you have any questions regarding this.

Book Early For This Summer

Listen this isn’t a sales ploy, you can take this advice with you even if you don’t book with DesignaVenture.

Looking at recent trends, the forthcoming summer weekends are going to be busy, very busy.

So that really means most weekends in May to September will get booked up, so make sure you get in there first and book early.

If you do book your stag do, hen party or activity event / weekend with DesignaVenture we only need a single £30 deposit*, giving you peace of mind that your important weekend is booked.

That’s all, you can now carry on with you day.

Good luck.

*All packages or activities, not including flights.

The UK Is Hot Right Now!

Within the next few months every man and his dog will be looking to book a hen or stag weekend and currently the UK is flavour of the month. So far this January we have seen an increase in enquiries and bookings for good old Blighty compared to last year.

So forget renewing your passport or buying Euros get your google maps app up and see where you can drive to.

From booking the FASTEST ZIP LINE IN THE WORLD to racing Rage Buggies which have actually featured on Top Gear, the UK has some of the best activities in the world so it’s no wonder hen and stag parties are opting for this Great Isle.

Not looking to get so active, then there are some superb hen and stag destinations by the coast where you can chill out in the day and party hard at night, with Newquay and Bournemouth being our most popular stag do seaside destinations.

Popular city hen and stag destinations for 2019 include Bristol, Cardiff, Nottingham, Newcastle and Edinburgh.

North Wales is also pretty popular this year and if your hen or stag party is looking for adventure there is no better destination. White water rafting, quad biking, loads of zip lines, canyoning and so many other activities await your group.

So if you’re looking for inspiration head over to our stag do ideas page for a plethora of adventure and put that passport away!

Happy New Year – What’s Going To Happen In 2019?

Happy new year to all our customers, whether you’ve booked Quad Biking in North Wales, or a stag weekend in Prague or a Horse racing weekend in Ascot, what we do know is that 2019 is going to be a brilliant year for our group stag and hen parties.

However there’s a hurdle…

Brexit, schmexit, politically who knows what’s going to happen?

Travel wise, will we need a visa to travel to Europe? Will the flights still operate?

Well luckily, ABTA has put a little article together and according to this article there will not be an issue. In this article ABTA have advised us on a no deal Brexit plus details on what will happen if Theresa May gets her deal through Parliament. According to the press the parliamentary vote will take place week commencing 14th January.

If Brexit is our only hurdle this year, than we have nothing to worry about.

Good luck and Happy New Year.
