A weekend that’s epic, memorable, hassle-free and ticks all the boxes without out burning a hole in the wallet – that’s the Maximise way and that’s what we specialise in. We are the stag and hen party specialist! There might be other companies out there, but they will never be the first and they will never have as much experience as Maximise does.

One of the biggest reasons people turn to Maximise is because they want and need some help planning the best and most unforgettable hen or stag weekend with ease and zero hassle. While you can definitely give it a go yourselves, organising a weekend away for a large group of guys or girls becomes pretty difficult once you factor in the accommodation and finding the right activities to keep everyone entertained, then there is the nightlife to worry about. This is where Maximise comes in. Our Staff knows everything there is to know about what makes a great stag and hen weekend and what destination will best suit your budgets and what you're after. In addition to this, our expert staff know all the nightlife haunts in all our party destinations as well as what accommodation best suits certain groups, the time of year and your budgets.

At Maximise we pride ourselves on being just as fun and exciting as the destinations and activities we offer our hen and stag parties. While you won’t find us playing paintball in the office, karting to work or pranking one another with a Roly Poly Stripper or Dwarf, we do have firsthand knowledge and experience of all of our destinations and activities because we’ve been there and done them.

There is no better way to find out about something than experiencing it for yourself, which is why all of Maximise’s employees are sent to all of our destinations and try all our top activities, so they know exactly how great the product is and they know exactly what you are getting. If you want top customer service, sales representatives with first-hand experience and knowledge and a company that has more than 20-years of experience sending people on their dream hen and stag weekend that's why you should choose Maximise!
