“As you can see, even if you add the price of transport and drinks, you aren’t getting anywhere near £1,500 or whatever ridiculous figure some of these websites are coming up with,” said GoHen’s Head of Sales, Jamie Birleson.

“There has been a steady increase in prices since 2013, but this has mirrored price rises in all industries.

“And whilst hen parties have got longer and more extravagant than a night out down the pub, it is still possible to enjoy a weekend away without breaking the bank.”
