Stag Do ideas that will make your trip a weekend to remember
Maybe just the thought of organising a trip for a bunch of lads makes you feel exhausted. Well never fear Pissup is here! Pull up a chair, get comfortable, as we take you through planning your stag do, destination tips and fun ideas.
First three steps to plan the perfect stag do weekend
Three things you need to know: the numbers of lads, the dates and the budget. Get these things right and if you want we can sort the rest!
1. Who’s coming?
When it comes to organising a stag do abroad, and even at home, numbers are important. To put it crudely: size matters! Joking aside a six man weekend might make doing certain team-based activities like paintballing difficult. Likewise if there are a whole lot of you, you might need a bus rather than a limo to take you to and from the airport.
So get those numbers sorted so you know you have enough lads ‘definitely’ coming so you start booking your stag do weekend away.
2. When the hell are we going?
Woody Allen said that 80% of success is showing up, but to make sure 80% of the guys confirm they are coming for weekend, you’ll need to know when you’re going well in advance. Time is money and the sooner you get your list, the better you’ll save on flight costs. However while this isn’t entirely in your hands, usually it’s up to the lucky couple, the more time you have to plan the stag do the easier it will be on your stress levels.
However much we moan about it, England’s climate is pretty mild all year round. But go anywhere further than Holland in Europe and you’ll see huge swings in temperature throughout the seasons. Why is this important? Well because some activities work better in the summer months – like white water rafting. Though of course the hardcore among you will want to try it out, winters in Eastern Europe are no joke, and you’ll have to think of what the whole gang would be happy with. But if you’re an adrenaline-junky many activities such as paintballing have indoor options for the winter.
3. What’s the budget?
You’ll need to decide your budget as a group. Unless you’re all City brokers or at the same level on the employment ladder, then you’ll need to set a limit. Obviously you can’t judge how much each guy is going to spend on booze (or lap-dances) when he gets there. But when it comes to flights, accommodation and activities you can get a round figure. Even better if you book with Pissup we can bundle activities and accommodation together to create a package holiday.
Maybe you want to do it on the cheap in Prague with apartment accommodation and a bar guide at the super-cheap £61 per person? Or perhaps you want the full-on Rock Star experience in Kraków for £259 and party it up in a 4 star hotel and watch a strip show after a delicious steak dinner? Whatever kind of stag weekend you want you’ll find a price to suit all budgets.
Stag Do: Where’s the best place to have it?
Okay so now you know who’s coming, the weekend you’ll be going on, and the budget per guy, you need to know the destination. Perhaps the groom has had it in his head that Vegas is his ideal destination like in ‘The Hangover’ series of movies. But unless he’s prepared to fork out a couple grand per head then maybe somewhere closer to home is best. We’re going to take a look at three common destinations for Brits on their last weekend of freedom.
1. At Home
There are plenty of advantages to having your stag do in the UK. First, unless you’re coming from John O’Groats to Lands End the journey will be brief. No faffing around at the airport, just a car, bus or train journey away. Second, is you won’t have to exchange money. Third, there might be a mates house you can stay in.
However having it at home in the UK has its disadvantages: the main one being cost. Okay so you and the lads might be all taking the train down to London but often there is very little difference in price between that and a flight to Budapest. And the prices in Europe compare very favourably with the UK. So yes: you don’t have to change money but you’ll save a packet on drink and activities if you book a location abroad. Things are cheap in cities like Bratislava – even in Berlin the beer should be cheaper.
2. On the Cool Continent
If you want to make your stag do weekend extra special then head across the water to the European Continent. When we Brits think of the Continent we imagine sophisticated coffee shops, berets and art galleries. But Western Europe covers an awesome variety of places to have it large on your stag weekend.
Maybe you want hot sandy beaches where you can do daredevil activities like in Barcelona. And there is more than one reason why Amsterdam ranks so highly in stag do destination surveys, and we shouldn’t have to spell it out for you! Or maybe Berlin is more your bag: with its legendary beer and decadent night clubs.
We’ve got all those bases covered, so when you’ve decided what type of weekend you want then just choose your city.
3. In the Wild East
Maybe Central and Eastern Europe still conjures up Cold War espionage movies in your mind. But those days are long gone and cities like Prague, Warsaw and Bratislava have come on leaps and bounds since then. The landscape and architecture are like the girls, in a word: beautiful. And for the average English traveller 88p for a beer at a bar in Budapest will be music to any Brit’s ears.
But don’t worry 007, it can still get wild out here, and you can recreate your favourite spy thriller while shooting AK-47s in ex-military bunkers in Kraków, or maybe you want to act the Bond villain and have your own strip show on a boat sailing down the Danube? Wild, yes, but if you book your stag do with Pissup we’ll keep you out of danger!
We’ve only scratched the surface of the huge variety of activities you can do if you book a weekend with Pissup. Check out our other tabs for more detailed info on activities and practical joke ideas that will make your weekend one to remember. But while we can help with shooting guns and pranking your stag, sorting out the costume theme, dares, and some drinking games are just as important.
Stag Do Theme
Getting a theme sorted is a must on a stag weekend. This is important for two reasons. First, practically speaking, if you’re in an unfamiliar city and you need to keep up with the group and sticking together when you’re three sheets to the wind is easier when you’re in a distinct costume. Second, is a themed costume will make you all feel like you’re an army, united for the weekend. Third is simple: it’s a laugh and peacocking will get you loads of attention from the local ladies.
What that costume is is up to you: perhaps if you’re all close, a t-shirt each with your nicknames on the back. Maybe you could go for something movie-related like Men in Black or Star Wars. Or if humiliation is your game then get the stag to dress up like a woman while you all follow in sensible gear!
2) Stag Challenge
Dares and missions are a must for any stag do weekend. Of course these are different than pranks and drinking games, because they involve the general public. These might be anything from challenging a stranger to a press up competition, to getting the numbers of five foreign girls in one hour. They could be eating competitions – see who can stuff as much food in their mouths without gagging (fat lads need not apply!) or even dressing up as a chick and using the girl’s bathroom like Damon Wayans in ‘White Girls’. There’s plenty of scope to embarrass the stag or find out who is the true alpha male of the group.
Play with fire you get burned, play with drink you get happy! If your missions don’t go according to plan then there are always drinking games to enliven your bar crawl. The best games are the simplest. With ‘sip or strip’ someone flips a coin and if your call is incorrect you either do a shot or take off an item of clothing (could get messy either way!). Or you can play ‘thumbmaster’, where one guy is chosen as the thumbmaster, if at any point he shows his thumb at the table the rest of the guys must follow suit with the last having to down his drink.
Whatever game you chose it’s great way to get drunk and compete for glory all at the same time.

5 Crazy Stag Pranks
Exclusive to Prague and best organised after a heavy night of drinking or before the return transfer to the airport. Our lovely local will turn up with her passport, suitcase and fake wedding certificate ready to return to her new home with her new hubby! The stunt ends with her doing what she does best and giving your stag party a great final memory.
A bit sexier that your normal loser holding a piece of cardboard at the side of the road. Our Pissup bus will pick her up and she will show her appreciation for the ride by removing all of her clothes! This prank is available all of our destinations.
One of our more realistic stunts exclusive to Krakow, which sees two undercover cops nick the stag on a night out for the bag of powder found in his pocket!
Exclusive to Budapest this prank is designed for the stag to play on the best man. Tired of all the humiliating stunts he’s played on you? Get some revenge at dinner or whilst in a bar. The stunt includes a large lady, warm fanta and some toilet humour. We wont go into detail!
Doesn’t the picture say it all?
Exclusive to Prague this one really is for our adrenaline junkies. We will strap you into the Czech made L-39 Albatros Jet, designed as the primary jet trainer for Russian MiG pilots. The pilot will climb at over 4,000ft/Minute, rolling and forcing your back into your fully functional ejection seat at over 700 km/h. Just what you need with a hangover!
Bungee Jumping for the Stag
Sofia provides the settings for our bungee jumping. This one really is not for the faint hearted. No instructors or guide for this trip, just you, a massive elastic cord and 120 metres to the floor! Makes me sick just thinking about it!
Stag Tandem Parachute Jump
In Warsaw we give you the opportunity to jump out of a plane from 4,000ft! This really is one turbo charged experience and one of the top buzzes that we offer. We can organise photos or videos or the event and will provide transfers to and back from the hotel… or hospital.
Scared of heights but still fancy the buzz of freefall? We’ll take you to indoor vertical wind tunnels in Riga, Prague and soon Budapest where you can experience wind speeds up to 340 kph. Although you may not get the panoramic views, you get an increase in freefall time, with each of you getting three sets of 2 minute flying time.
