Planning a buck's party for your best mate? That can get expensive, but if you want to save money, there are lots of possibilities. You don't necessarily have to stay in and play board games. Have fun on the town without breaking the bank with these ideas:
1. Look for deals for buck's parties
Some companies offer deals to people who are having a buck's night. That could be anything from free desserts to buy-one-get-one-free deals on drinks to discounts on buck's party transportation. Call around and see what companies offer to help you celebrate your mate's upcoming nuptials.
2. Make the most of cover charges
As you start looking for places to go, you may discover that a lot of places require a cover charge. Don't necessarily rule out places with coverage charges, but make sure that you're getting the most out of what you spend. For instance, make sure that you're paying to see a band or DJ that you love, that the cover charge includes a free drink or that you're getting other benefits out of the entry fee.
3. Consolidate transportation
Once you've picked a few places to go, you need to figure out how you and the crew are going to get from place to place. Driving your own cars is not that fun, as it means the drivers have to stay sober all night. Paying for separate Ubers or cabs can get expensive.
Instead, consider consolidating all of your transportation needs by hiring a buck's party bus. When you hire a bus, you pay a flat fee that is often less than the cost of multiple public transit tickets or multiple taxi rides. Additionally, you don't have to worry about parking costs, and you don't have to waste time calling and waiting for a ride. The party bus drops you off at each destination, picks you up outside and takes you to the next spot for fun.
4. Focus on drink deals
Many places offer bulk deals on drinks. That can take a number of forms. For example, in many places, it's less expensive to order a pitcher of lager rather than individual schooners. Similarly, it's also usually less expensive to order a "bucket" with several bottles of beer rather than individual bottles. Some clubs even sell liquor by the bottle (aka bottle service) which can be cheaper than individual cocktails.
5. Eat at home
Finally, save money by eating at home. Consider doing a "bachelor's buffet". Lean into the stereotype of men as not being able to cook and have everyone bring their favourite easy bachelor's meal. Then, you can jump on your party bus and head out for the night without worrying about expensive meal prices.
