The price of the average hen and stag parties has increased by more than 60 per cent in ten years.

A poll of 1,200 adults who have been on stag or hen dos, or have one coming up, found the cost of attending one in 2012 was an average of £150.

Today, that figure is £242 – with 42 per cent regretting parting with so much cash.

The survey also found that before the pandemic, UK cities such as London, Liverpool and Manchester, were among the most common choices among hens and stags.

But more exotic locations like Amsterdam, Marbella and even Miami are proving to be more popular.

Emma Tagg, spokeswoman, said: “It’s clear hen and stag dos are on the rise, and we have even seen a 12 per cent increase in searches for group trips compared to 2019, with people clearly ready to celebrate in style.

“Pre-pandemic most people (24 per cent) said they didn’t take any days off work to attend a hen or stag party.

"However, when asked how many days people would be taking for their next do, the most popular answer was a whopping three days. 

“It’s clear Brits are going bigger than ever with more holiday days being taken and more money being spent this year."

The survey also found that, of those whose have regretted going on a hen or stag do, 40 per cent put the blame on spending too much money.

Just under a third admitted they had behaved in a "regrettable" manner, while 32 per cent claimed the entire trip was just a nightmare all round.

But 38 per cent felt the event dragged on too long, meaning they had to take more time off work than they’d have liked.
