Hen Do Packages | Are They Worth The Money?

Best Places for Stag Do | See Our Most Popular Cities

Hen do packages have taken the world by storm over the last decade.

But many groups question whether paying a huge chunk of money all in one, for one package is worth the money? The first hurdle of a hen do is choosing the location to celebrate in, but after that ladies start questioning – hen party activities or hen do packages?

With years of experience at Funktion, we’ve considered all the options (even adding some cheap hen weekend packages to the mix) and come up a few interesting conclusions.

Hen Do Packages Pros & Cons

Hen Do Packages  - Pros

All organised in one go – less stress for you around wedding season! - With all the wedding chaos, it’s nice to know everything from your hotel to a local bar guide for the city is planned in advance for the hen party.

Only asking for money once from all the girls - We know how hard it is to prise money from a group of 10+ girls, so this way everyone can pay when they’re ready so all the respon­­sibility isn’t on the organiser!

Organised by profes­­si­­onals, through a single company - Through us for example, you can book everything online or over the phone, with 24/7 access to your online payments and hen do itinerary.

One group deposit to keep things easier (£40 with us for example) - Let’s be honest ladies, forty quid isn’t a lot to get the whole hen weekend sorted, and means you can worry about the money later.

Hen Do Packages  - Cons

A more expensive option than just one activity - Packages come at a price, but you can usually find them discounted – just make sure all the girls are happy spending a big chunk of money in one go.

Not as flexible as booking everything separately - Pre-made packages mean you can control all the details, so be aware that you can make some changes but most stuff is set in stone.

Likely can’t choose your accom­moda­tion - Most of our packages come with a hotel already included so the price is always the same, so make sure you check the rate of hotel before you go booking the hen party package.

Although there are a few cons, we’ve seen a growing popularity in getting everything sorted with easy hen packages, which means a growing number of package options.
