It goes without saying that you want a trouble free stag weekend away. Many of the things that often go wrong for stag parties can be prevented or made less stressful by taking a few simple precautions. So it makes sense to spend a little time getting prepared before you travel – you could save yourself a lot of problems later on.
With this in mind, we are working with the Government to help British nationals stay safe abroad. The Government website (www.gov.uk/knowbeforeyougo) offers straightforward travel advice, top tips and up to date country information to help you plan your hen weekend.
Make sure you have valid travel insurance, even if you’re only planning a short trip.
Check what vaccinations you need by visiting www.fitfortravel.nhs.uk, your travel health clinic or GP at least 6 weeks before you travel
Read up on your destination, including local laws and customs.
Make photocopies of your passport, visas and insurance details and leave a copy with a relative or friend at home.
You can also find handy checklists to use before you set off and whilst you’re away. Plus it’s worth reading up on what the local British Consulate can do to help you if you run into problems abroad – and what they can’t do.

Have the most awesome... but safe... stag weekend abroad.
