The continued credit crunch is not deterring stag parties from going away to celebrate their last weekend of freedom, according to one of the industry's leading organisers.
Online PR News – 08-January-2010 – – Despite the continued credit crunch, the interest in stag weekends is not only remaining strong, but is higher than ever before, according to one of the industry’s leading organisers The Stag Company.
The Brighton-based organisers have reported a 50% year-on-year increase in enquiries for stag weekends with the level of interest surging to record levels following the Christmas break.
With the country still in a recession and unemployment levels high it had been feared that best men would be instructed to organise a low-key stag do.
However, this has not been the case as The Stag Company’s director, Rob Hill, explains: “We have seen stag weekend enquires grow by the day, which has surpassed our expectations. Our phones are red-hot and some of our summer packages are already selling it.
“We think it is great that lads are deciding not to sacrifice their big party night, even in these difficult times. We are firm believers that a ‘last weekend of freedom’ should be celebrated in style.”
Nottingham stag weekends are proving particularly popular with year-on-year interest up by 50%, while while the other destinations enjoying a surge in interest are Edinburgh, Brighton and Liverpool.
On the other end of the scale there has only been a little rise in enquiries for European stag weekends, as the unfavourable exchange rate is putting off stag parties leaving these shores for their party weekend.
