How to organise a Benidorm Hen Party
When it comes to starting to think about organising a hen party in Benidorm you’ve got two options.
You can either book a Benidorm hen weekend package where your travel, accommodation and activities are all booked together and organised by a tour operator.
Or you can put together a DIY hen weekend to Benidorm where you book your own flights, accommodation and make your own plans for what to do in Benidorm.
Both options have advantages and disadvantages, but we think that planning a hen weekend in Benidorm yourself is totally doable these days thanks to the internet and offers you much more flexibility in terms of activities and accommodation. It also often works out a bit cheaper because you’re not paying a middle man.
We’re going to start by going through all the steps you need to plan a DIY Benidorm hen weekend.

Booking flights to Benidorm for a hen weekend
If you’ve chosen Benidorm for a hen party then you’ve made a good decision in terms of getting there, because it’s one of the easiest places to get to in mainland Europe from the UK.
When travelling to Benidorm, you actually fly into nearby Alicante airport, which is about a 40 minute taxi ride (€70-80) or 50 minute bus ride (€10 each).
When organising travel, the best way to find cheap flights is to use a flight search engine.
We always recommend using Omio* for this which is completely free and they’ll help you find options from all the different airlines for your chosen dates.
If you’re booking flights for a large group of hens then we recommend being super organised and gathering all their details (ahem, and payment) in advance.
To book flights for others you’ll need information such as their full name, date of birth, passport number etc.
We’ve created a handy free Google Sheet template for this that you can simply duplicate and share on your hen do Whatsapp group.
Each hen can then just fill in her details so you’ve got everything you need in one place for making the booking.
Important! Don’t forget to make a COPY of this google sheet and change the privacy settings to keep all your personal data safe!
