Forget a night out in your local pub; your send-off into married life deserves something a little more special! A hen weekend abroad is the perfect chance to let your hair down and enjoy some quality time with your best friends before you tie the knot, so start planning your hen party holiday today. Our hen and stag partner Red7 are experts in the group holiday industry, making them the ideal provider to arrange all your fun for you!

Why Book a Hen Weekend Abroad?

With package holiday weekends becoming increasingly cheaper, going abroad isn’t the expensive blowout it once was. In fact, you could find yourselves paying the same amount, or even less, than you would on a UK break! A break abroad also gives you an excuse to escape from your wedding-planning stress and celebrate your upcoming nuptials with your best friends. And remember – hen packages often include a free stay for the hen!

How to Book a Cheap Hen Holiday

Plan in advance: On a hen weekend there are likely to be at least 10 guests, so you can’t afford to leave arrangements until the last minute. Establish who’s coming, find a date when everyone’s available, and book as soon as you can. The later you leave it, the harder it will be to find flights and hotels that can accommodate your whole group. Red7 allow you to book with a group deposit of just £50 and each guest can pay separately with their own payment plan; booking a group holiday has never been easier.

Book everything with one provider: Booking flights, accommodation and all your activites as one package could get you some serious savings. Not only can Red7 book everything for you, their years of experience mean they know all the best events and activities to recommend. If you choose the right deal, you could even get a free place for the hen.

Get food sorted: Eating out in a large group can be expensive and extremely stressful, so make sure you have a plan for meals! If you’re on a beach holiday book all inclusive or self catering to allow flexibility, while if you’re on a city break go for B&B and make meal reservations in advance.

Popular Hen Weekend Destinations

Where you go for your hen weekend abroad depends on what kind of break you want. If you’re looking for a party weekend by the beach, Spain is a popular choice – splash out in Ibiza, go cheap and cheerful in Benidorm, or hit the clubs in Magaluf. If you want a sun holiday that’s more low-key, try the sunny coastline of the Algarve or the classy beach clubs of Marbella.

Your other main option is a city break, with a fun mix of culture and cocktails! Prague and Amsterdam are two of Europe’s biggest nightlife hubs, and tempt hen and stag groups alike with cheap drinks and all-night bars. If your days of hard partying are behind you, consider Barcelona, Paris or Madrid for delicious food, beautiful sights and great shopping.

Whatever you're looking for, Red7 can help you organise your dream hen party. With over 50 UK and overseas destinations and more than 100 activity ideas to offer, their travel experts are your one-stop shop for all your questions and booking needs.
