How to GoBananas in 5 Steps

1. Create a Poll

1. Create a Poll
You may think you know what everybody wants to do, but chances are that you don't. Never fear as we have the solution for you: our very own polling tool that allows you to ask all the pertinent questions of the gang: where, what, when, how much and so forth. Armed with the answers, you will be ready to create a plan!

2: Send Out Invitations

2: Send Out Invitations
They are waiting for this on tenterhooks and the good news is that when you create a poll - you also create an invitation for the event which you can send out to see who is in and out before you start. Not only does it tell you what numbers to expect, it also gets everybody super, but super excited!

3. Create a Plan

3. Create a Plan
Now's the moment to create your plan - you don't have to book anything at this stage, you can save ideas from the website to an itinerary and then see how it all shapes up. It is sort of like bookmarking things in your browser so you can find them again easily. From an idea you can then check availability with the providers with one click. From little acorns, the great oak grows etc...

4. Share Out the Costs

4. Share Out the Costs
Now you can take the complete cost of everything together and split it among the group (or even other people) so that each person pays their own way. You won't have to rely on people remembering to pay you back and you won't have to explain to your bank why you don't have any money in the account. The best thing is we do the chasing for you so no embarrassing calls to friends.

5. Enjoy

5. Enjoy
And, of course: have a great time!

Chasing Cats

Organising a group of people is like chasing the proverbial cats! With the GoBananas system you can build a group - poll them to see what they want to do, go, spend and then keep track of who is coming and who is not and then get each person to pay their own costs! Purrrfectly wonderful!

Helping you Communicate

Communicating with everybody when you are trying to get organised can be painful and frustrating, which is where GoBananas comes in: you can use our system to send messages to all the groups at the same time, to ask us and suppliers questions and generally keep everybody abreast of what is going on.

Shared Group Payments

Don't burn up your credit card when we can organise for everybody to pay their own way which means that you are not left holding the bill at the end of the day. You can pay online or by bank transfer and you can divide up the costs any way you want!

Hen in Auckland...

The service was incredible! Thank you so much! I have already recommended go bananas to some friends who are organising events at the moment. Everyone had a really great time, the topless waiter was perfect! So helpful and he made sure everyone was having a great time. I was worried about people mixing and having fun but thankfully I didn't have to worry at all so thank you. The cocktail course was so much fun too. The bartenders were very attentive and we all had a good laugh. So thank you again, you will be my first port of call for my next event!

Auckland Hen Party

I wanted to thank you and Go Banana's for contributing to a wonderful hen's weekend. We had an awesome time. Our waiter, Brad, was such a great sport and handled us with professionalism while ensuring everyone was involved and had a great time. He was a great asset to the night and made sure everyone, especially the bride, was entertained. Paris was also fantastic and did an outstanding job entertaining the crowd... was pleased with the high standards on all aspects of the Friday. It would be great if you can please pass the message on to Brad and Paris's bosses. The male revue show was also great! They kept it classy (well, as classy as you can get at a show of it's kind). We were thoroughly amused and appreciated their attitude in handling a bunch of rowdy Sydney gals. Too bad we don't have one in Sydney smile emoticon. All in all, we all enjoyed ourselves thoroughly and I will 100% utilise your services again. Thanks Paula, for helping me to bring this to life.

Taupo Hen Weekend

I would like to say a huge thank you to the team at Go Bananas, they were very professional and were very helpful, fast, flexible and easy to communicate with. They planned our hen party in Taupo and we had a blast! Everything was organised down to the fine tooth comb. It was great to have an itinerary with times, contact details and maps with directions to such activities. Our first stop of the day was to Spa hot pools, this was lovely, it gave the girls time to unwind and get to know each other better.
They showered and changed after that and we went onto Huka Falls Resort. Wow this place was amazing, the food was spot on, so much food we have heaps left over and the wine catered to all. Each bottle of the four was very nice! After the resort we went to Huka Falls look out, was lovely there.
In the evening we went to our function room for games and nibbles. We had the entire club to ourselves for two hours and this was awesome! The bar owner Mike was very accommodating and coped very well with our rowdy bunch! Then we had the stripper who was very professional and from there the rest of the night was a blast!
Overall experience 10/10 was a PERFECT day and night! The bride was thrilled!!!

Stag Party in Auckland

Thanks for all your help during the planning of Chris' stag party on Saturday. We all had a really good time. The paintball set up out there is fantastic, another stag party turned up at the same time as us so at the suggestion of the blokes running the Paintball we swapped stags and had a head to head. Great idea and it turned out really well. The guys on the boat were also top notch. They took us over to St Heliers for a swim and a feed. Great boat, great guys and a wonderful afternoon's weather to be on the water." Thanks Craig
