Cheap Stag Do Ideas - How To Have A Stag Night On A Budget
A stag do doesn't have to cost the earth, and there's plenty of things you can do which don't cost the Earth.
If you're looking for ideas on how to have a budget stag party, but still an epic time, these are some ideas which will get you started.
Keep It Local
More and more lads are having stag weekend's in Europe and abroad, but this does come at a cost.
Keeping things local by making sure everything is within walking distance, or at worst, a taxi or bus ride away for most of your group will keep the costs down to a minimum.
Depending on where you live, there could be plenty of activities you can do in your own town or city that you wouldn't normally do.
Keep It In The UK
If you fancy having a stag do outside your own city but don't want to stretch to getting on a plane, going to another city in the UK is an option.
You'll get the full stag experience in another city, get their by train and stay in a cheap hotel, apartment or hostel.
Once you've arrived, you can experience the city pretty much for free, leaving you with plenty of money for the big night out.
One Night Only
These days a lot of stags are making a weekend, or even a long weekend out of their celebrations, and some even having multiple stag parties.
If you're on a budget, make sure it's the classic one night only.
Search For The Best Deals
If you do end up going abroad, or want to book any activities, tours or excursions, make sure you search for the best deals.
Don't just pick out the first thing you see. Search the Internet, be on the look out for deals and offers, and you should find something within your price range.
You can use apps such as Skyscanner to find flights. Remember, it may be cheaper to fly from a different airport, however you have to factor in the cost of getting to and from that airport, if it's in a different city.
Have A Kitty
Having a kitty is a good way to keep things fair, organised and cheap. What is a stag kitty?
You choose an amount, and everyone pays into the kitty. This could be £50 each, you total it up and see what you can get for your money.
Generally, the more people who go, the less you have to pay per person. It can be used to fund all the drinks on the night out, an activity or the whole weekend.
The good old fashioned pub crawl is a British institution for a stag night. Get the lads together, hit every pub and bar in your local city, and finish off in a club. It really is that simple, and it will only cost you the price of your drinks.
Make sure you've got the group wearing their stag T Shirts, which we can help you out with. This will make the night that little bit more special, rather than your usual weekly nights out with the lads.
If you're the stag, you might even get a free drink from the other lads, so if there's a lot of you, that could be a really cheap night for you!
It could be one of the most unusual stag do ideas, but having a scavenger hunt is a cheap way to get the lads together for some fun.
Split yourselves into teams, write down a list of items you need to collect, have photographic evidence and away you go.
This is a good game to play on a night out with the lads, and you can collect anything from everyday items to the most bizarre things!
Those that fail may have to partake in doing a dare or forfeit, so you have to make sure you're at the top of your game.
Curry Night (Or Other Food)
Stag dos don't need to all be about beer, there's plenty you can do if you want an alcohol free stag night. One of those is a night of your favourite food, so a curry night could be it.
Find out which restaurants organise the best foods, and then it's just a case of making a large booking, all turning up and that's it.
You can all put money into the pot, and it will give you a really affordable and enjoyable night out.
Fancy a laugh? Get yourself down to your local comedy club. Find out who's on, you and the lads can go down, have a few drinks and hopefully be entertained for the evening.
Lads Night In
Is there anything better than a lads night in? The possibilities are pretty endless with a good old fashioned boys night at home.
Host this in your own house, or find a friend who has the biggest house, and have the night there.
Pull together money or get each person to organise bringing something. That is usually alcohol, and then get some food delivered.
There's plenty of fun to have with a stag party at home, from gaming to watching films, a quiz or listening to music.
There's plenty of other stag do ideas you can check out, if you are in charge of organising the event, or just want to know what to expect.
Whatever you decide to do, make sure it's a good one!
