Smashed! Hen parties ruin holiday homes..

80% of hen parties lie to book accommodation

Hen Parties are Liars!

…if you believe the Daily Mail.

According to research by Schofields Holiday Home, quoted by the Daily Mail:

  • 81% of hen parties said they lied about the purpose of their stay in order to book holiday home accommodation
  • 43% of parties accidentally damage the properties.

These statistics coincide with the number of hen parties booking holiday homes for their parties doubling in the last 5 years – from 15% to 30%.

The figures are shocking when looked at in isolation, but we do wonder how many girl weekends away or even couples accidentally damage a property during a break – a fuller picture is needed to draw a fair comparison.

We all want to have a great party so here’s our advice to get the perfect holiday home:

  • Research where to go and try to choose somewhere set up for hen parties
  • Use a dedicated hen party company such as DesignaVenture
  • Be honest about why you are using the property.
  • If you do damage something then let the owner know before you leave and pay for it – 36% of hen parties that caused damage were contacted by the owners for compensation.  It’s also much easier to sort out who needs to pay before you all leave – don’t get left with the bill.

If you are booking holiday home accommodation then here’s some great hen party at home ideas.
