HOW TO ORGANIZE A BACHELOR PARTY IN BUDAPEST ?
Organizing a bachelor party in Budapest or elsewhere is always a real logistical hassle. Indeed, you have to arrange the dates, the hotel, budget the whole thing and make sure that everyone has their identity papers. However, organizing all of this yourself is the assurance of having control over your program.
For those who don’t want to bother with this, another solution is to use an agency or service provider specialized in the organization of bachelor parties abroad.
Be careful though. This solution is inevitably more expensive. Moreover, although the service is personalized, you will probably not have the hand or the choice on the schedules, etc…
HOW MUCH DOES A BACHELOR PARTY IN BUDAPEST COST?
Let’s face it, a Bachelor party in Budapest or elsewhere is an opportunity to have fun. It is therefore difficult to establish a budget. However, you should know that a “classic” stay in Budapest is around 80 – 100 euros (hotel, transportation and food included, nightlife not included).
However, it is likely that this rate is quite low compared to what you could possibly spend on a bachelor party. The easiest way to do this is to budget everything you can and plan a comfortable enough mattress for the upcoming outings, whether it be in a restaurant, bar or other.
