05/05/2020

As the uncertainty surrounding Covid-19 continues, we're seeing more people re-arrange stag dos for the UK, which had previously been booked abroad.

Online PR News – 05-May-2020 – Ivybridge, Devon – The COVID-19 outbreak continues to instil a great deal of uncertainty in the travel and events industries, with safety being the top priority amongst most companies and people. Considering the current global situation, it is no surprise to see more and more people opt for a UK stag do rather than having their stag do abroad.

UK-based hen and stag do company Essential Adventure has seen a spike in stags enquiring about a UK stag do. In the current climate, it is undoubtedly the safer option financially. With the UK economy grinding to a halt in recent times, we are all having to look at ways in which we can save money. It’s no secret that a UK stag do usually costs considerably less than a stag do abroad and this is just one of the reasons why more British citizens are choosing a celebration on home soil.

Flight cancellations, border closures and quarantine periods are other real issues facing those who opt for an abroad stag do in the coming months. While Las Vegas and Barcelona might not be as glamorous as Blackpool and Newcastle, there are still plenty of classy and exciting UK stag do destinations to consider. The rural areas of the UK present stag dos with a host of activities to take on and, when night descends, there are still plenty of party cities across the nation.

Interest in Major UK Stag Do Destinations

Essential Adventure has witnessed a marked rise in interest in particular UK destinations, among men aged between 25 - 40. The hen and stag company say that an increased number of stag groups have shown interest in the following areas, as a result of COVID-19 making abroad plans unrealistic:

Manchester
Bristol
Newcastle
Cardiff
Birmingham

Speaking of the recent trend, Graham Cary from Essential Adventure, stated: “We are experiencing a lot more stag groups enquiring about our packages in various UK cities. The reasoning as to why and consensus is pretty clear among those that we ask; people are just not willing to risk booking a stag do abroad, in light of the coronavirus situation. Financially and health-wise, it seems a big risk right now.”
