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.
While 47 per cent believe pre-wedding-parties have become more extravagant in the last couple of years.
Of these, 48 per cent think this is because people are making up for lost time during the pandemic while 46 per cent believe it’s down to having more savings.
And 44 per cent think travellers want to compare themselves to online influencers.
It also emerged that, pre-pandemic, UK cities were the most likely candidates for a stag or hen party, with London, Liverpool and Manchester the most commonly visited.
But the UK’s capital drops to 12th on the list of places people will go on their next one, with exotic locations like Amsterdam, Marbella and even Miami more likely destinations.
The survey was commissioned by Hotels.com, which has coined ‘Stag doe’, a mixed gender celebration (for stags and does), killing two birds with one stone when celebrating ahead of the big day.
Emma Tagg, Hotels.com spokesperson, 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 (21 per cent).
“It’s clear Brits are going bigger than ever with more holiday days being taken and more money being spent this year.”
