It’s amazing to know what you can get up to once you leave the kids and the other half at home; heading off to enjoy the night with one of your girlfriends who is about to take the plunge into marriage. As we get older, the mischievousness that we got up to in our younger years seems to vanish. But it does come out on the odd occasion!
Now the standard hen night usually involves some sort of drinking and parading – and that should still continue. But there is usually the stay at the hotel, home or spa.
Why not do things a little different and opt for an experience-hopping hen do instead?
Hire a driver and a minivan for the day; I assure you that you’ll be able to pack in more experiences and more fun!
YOUR OWN PERSONAL CHAUFFEUR FOR CLUB AND BAR HOPPING
Now this obviously depends where you are based in the world. If you are based in a city where the bars are quite far to get to, the last thing you want to be doing is jumping in different cabs every time you want to move to the next location, racking up an expensive bill.
Instead, opt for a driver for the day who will be waiting for you, taking you wherever you want to go.
GETTING BACK TO NATURE
The club scene not for you?
Take in the fresh air of the countryside and enjoy the scenic views that your driver takes you to instead. You girls can go to the beach, go for a walk, have a picnic with some drinks, and/or just take in each other’s company; then decide to go home when you are ready.
A MINI ROAD-TRIP
Another option is to make a complete day of it by visiting spots as part of a day-long road trip.
For example, you may start at your accommodation and then drive up the coastline; listening to your favourite tunes and doing a sing-along. Stop off at a cafe for a bite to eat or some lunch, and then make your way to the next location. This second part of the trip could include games or gossip – just make sure that the driver isn’t someone you know!

The best thing you can do is use Car Rental Buddy, who do car hire comparisons worldwide. That way you can find an option in your city. It shouldn’t cost more than $300.00 for the day, which is less than $40pp.
