Cheapflights' in-house experts put their travel know how to work recommending destinations fit for the boys, separate ones for the girls and one all-rounder fit anyone and everyone.


Belgrade, Serbia: Party it up on the cheap. The fact that this city is still one of Eastern Europe's up and comers means that it's still one of region's cheapest destinations. Nonetheless, it's packed with things to do. For those in search of a typical stag do complete with clubs and good alcohol, this is the place to be. Belgrade is hailed for its nightlife and is incredibly low cost. A beer here costs around £1 and hostel prices start from about £12 a night. Summer is the best season for partying and travellers should head the barges and three story boats that serve as open air clubbing venues on the Danube River. Flights to Belgrade start from £167 return.

Valencia, Spain: While it's partly known for its nightlife and beaches, Valencia has a lot more to offer. This is a great all-round destination for the intrepid Brit who wants a Spanish destination that's different but also wants an adventure. There's a world of zany activities to choose from including attending a football match to see some of Europe's finest players in the flesh, having a game of tank wars in a real tank with laser guns, shooting it out with a day of paintballing, and topping it all off with some pub crawling and typical Spanish tapas. Travellers can either combine different ideas independently or look for packages with specialist organiser companies. The average cost runs around £200 or slightly more for an unforgettable experience. Flights to Valencia start from £242.


Prague, Czech Republic: While it's no longer much of an up and comer, Prague is still one of the best and prettiest destinations for a hen weekend. Pub crawls here are epic and incredibly cheap. There are even tour groups that specialise in pub crawl tours and those who sign up get to meet other crawlers from all walks of life. Ladies looking for a fun weekend should check out tours starting in the stunning Old Town, which go from bar to bar and start with a free shot, usually of Absinthe, as a welcome within each bar. There are also open bar offers that serve up a hangover inducing mixture of wine, some form of hard alcohol and a limitless supply of some of the world's best beers, which cost as little as £1, but normally come for free on these tours. Some other of the city's favourite beverages that are sold dirt cheap include Unicm and Jager. Pub crawls here normally culminate in hitting a club or two. One of the most famous and Europe's biggest club is the Karlovy Lazne next to the Charles Bridge. Flights to Prague start from £150 return.

Paris, France: Some might consider it cliché, but, let's face it, there's no more glamorous or girlie way to send off a bride to be with a bang than a trip to Paris. It's so close that travellers can make their trip as long or as short as they choose. If heading there with a specialist hen celebration organiser such as GoHen, it doesn't have to be expensive. Bachelorettes can take their pick of already prepared packages or custom make their own starting from £195 per person, inclusive of food, drink, activity and accommodation. Activity ideas include wining, dining, VIP club entry, shopping 'til you drop, sightseeing, a typically Parisian show that is both saucy and sassy and a relaxing spa day. Alternatively, go all out and combine all of the above! The hen world is your oyster when it comes to the sparkling City of Lights. Flights to Paris start from £108 return.


Las Vegas, Nevada: As the movie states, "what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas!" So whether you're a hen or a stag, this is the place that suits all for letting your hair down and having a great time. Whether you're after pampering, sitting by the pool, a taste of culture, some gambling, great food served up in huge buffets from various countries, world class shopping, luxurious hotel suites at budget prices, some of the world's most famous shows and a whole lot more, Vegas has absolutely all of it. This is decadence at its best and a truly unforgettable experience. Just don't get too drunk and end up in a chapel with Elvis asking you to say "I do." Flights to Las Vegas start from £418 return.
