£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!

Book 2019, Relax & Save Money

A very wise philosopher once said “don’t put off until tomorrow what you can do today”, he was one of the founding members of the United States, Benjamin Franklin – everyday’s a school day people!

The same philosophy should go to arranging your stag do or hen weekend, there is no point booking it next year if you can book it now.

Here’s the good bit – HOW YOU CAN SAVE MONEY AND RELAX:

Save Money

Unfortunately it’s inevitable, prices go up each year, it’s called inflation, even though we at DesignaVenture try to keep our prices as sharp as we can, hotels and activity sites see their cost rise year on year, (petrol, food, cleaning, wages etc.) so these extra costs have to be passed on.

However, if you currently book your 2019 stag do or hen weekend, you will get 2018 prices, saving you lots of dollar.

Once you have decided on your stag do, hen weekend or activity break – all you have to do is put down one deposit of £30, you have then locked in your price, safe from any price rises.

Relax DesignaVenture Has Got Your Back

Once you have put down your £30 deposit we will send you a link to pass on to the other members of the group, so they can pay their £30 deposits. Alternatively you can go online and share the booking from your members area. Each time someone books, you will receive an email keeping you updated with who’s paid.

*Getting the guys to commit and pay their deposits early is a huge plus, here’s why:

  • They will stick the date in their diary and not forget about it
  • You will weed out all the “Pub Talkers” who are just giving you lip service and not really wanting to come
  • You’ve booked, everyones committed – that will be a load off!

It’s then time to relax, as you’ve booked early.

Booking early means…

  • You should get the time slots you want for your activities
  • The best hotel
  • You’ll be happier then a kid at a Marshmallow factory

Goo luck, get it, goo luck, because of the Marshmallow joke, instead of Good Luck, oh never mind, I’m wasted here!
