How is the coronavirus affecting my Bratislava Stag Event plans? Advice for Stag and Hen Dos Travelling to Bratislava!
Let's be honest here, Covid 19 has been scary and messed up a lot of Stag Plans for travelling and weddings across the world and Bratislava is no different! Luckily here in Slovakia, we are over the worst and well on the way to a near-normal situation. Even if you are worried about visiting Slovakia, rest assured we have been one of the earliest to lock down and with one of the least death rates world-wise. You can check our record for the virus here: https://korona.gov.sk/en/coronavirus-covid-19-in-the-slovak-republic-in-numbers/
However, we need to answer a few of your questions and there have put together some important points which we hope you'll find useful.
If in doubt, please contact us and we will do our best to rectify the situation as soon a possible.

Yes! Even if there will be further travel restrictions to certain destinations, we will make sure that all bookings are carried out while ensuring safety for all. Our goal is to make sure you still manage to experience an amazing party trip once the situation returns to normal.
Can I postpone my event?
If for any reason between now and the end of 2020 (we are monitoring the situation closely and will update the period if necessary) you are unable to travel to Bratislava for the events booked, we will re-book your trip for a later date within the year 2021 or even into 2022 if needed.
If you wish to postpone your trip, you (Group Leader) must contact us as soon as possible without delay. If you contact us at least 5 days before your weekend begins, we will re-book all activities FOR FREE.
Can I change already scheduled activities/events?
If you want to change your activities to different activities, we will do our best to accommodate this – but again, please contact us as soon as possible.
Can I cancel my event?
If for any reason, whether due to the FOC/your Ministry of Foreign Affairs issuing an official travel ban, your government grounding flights or restricting your ability to cross borders, or if simply because your personal preference is to not attend the event you have booked, any longer, European Stag Company will offer the possibility to postpone your trip in the same destination to a later date in 2021 or 2022, so you will still manage to experience an amazing Bratislava Stag party once the situation hopefully returns to normal.
We strongly recommend re-booking and postponing your trip if possible, as this is something where we can find a cost-saving and quick solution for you.
If you still wish to cancel your trip we however simply cannot process any cash refunds at the moment. In line with the advice of prominent travel trade associations such as ABTA.
What if my flight is cancelled?
Please get in touch with the airline you have booked with about any planned restrictions of flights to your destination.
