The tradition of the stag-do can be traced back all the way back to ancient Greece where, in Sparta, on the night before his wedding, a man was celebrated by his military comrades.
Since then, it has been reinvented a fair few times, with rituals from the noble to the bizarre to the downright boring making up man’s last night of freedom. However, in the last couple of decades, the night has upgraded from a night in your local boozer with a handful of old friends to a full-blown international trip.
"However, in the last couple of decades, the night has upgraded..."
So, if you’re that put-upon best man, charged with the ultimate responsibility of shepherding rowdy groomsmen halfway across the world for a weekend of hedonistic antics, then allow us to lend a hand. Victor, Luxury Jet Charters, have seen a huge uptick in bachelor parties using their service as a one-off for these upmarket stag-dos. So, with the world at your feet, these are the best destinations to fly to — and which private jet to take to each…
Charter the Legacy 650 to Berlin
Let’s start close to home. Berlin, where highlights include Europe’s first crowdfunded brewery Vagabond Brauerei, in the appropriately named Wedding city district, is the perfect bachelor party destination. And the Legacy 650 is the perfect way to get there. Fully equipped to take a group of thirteen passengers to their destination of choice, this jet is very spacious compared to other aircraft in its class, featuring three large, separate zones.
But, whilst it is equipped with a transcontinental range, Victor advise stag parties to consider setting their sights on the German capital for their weekend away on this plane. It’s a cultural hub, and offers something for every type of groom. We’d recommend heading to Newton Bar in central Berlin, where Cuban cigars and exotic cocktails are the order of the day.

Fly aboard the Gulfstream G-550 to Las Vegas
What happens in Vegas, stays at 41,000ft in the air. It’s not as catchy, but you get the gist. And what a jet to fly on. The Gulfstream G-550 flies at more than 92% of the speed of sound and can offer up to 18 selected guests the premium experience of modern luxury. It also comes complete with four distinct living areas — including a kitchen for making those all-important in-flight cocktails.
So, if you have Las Vegas in your sights, and are flying there via private jet charter, why not go all out and also book the extravagant ARIA Luxury Sky Villa, with its amazing Strip view and 3,370 sq. ft. of unparalleled luxury. Victor also recommend XS Las Vegas, a club inspired by the curves of the human body where you will frequently find the likes of Diplo and David Guetta performing.

Take to the sky in the Legacy 600 to Ibiza
Friday night to Saturday morning Ibiza charters are becoming increasingly popular, according to Victor. And it’s a great itinerary. Groups will dine early in London, fly late to Ibiza and head straight to the dancefloor before flying home the morning after.
A popular choice for partygoers is to take an early champagne supper at Soho’s iconic Bob Bob Ricard, seamlessly transfering to London Luton or London City, and chartering direct to Ibiza’s classic disco-house jamboree Glitterbox at Hi Ibiza. And, aboard the Legacy 600, a group of 13 can be taken to the party island at dizzying speed and in supreme comfort. It’s got more space than any other business jet in its category — giving you plenty of room to party in the sky.
