Visiting Mecca, the holy city of Islam, is mandatory for all Muslims who can afford Hajj. However, there is another activity that can be done throughout the year: Hajj, a non-obligatory sacred act, but one of Allah’s favorite forms of prayer. Here’s what you should know before you pack your bags and embark on this holy journey. Make sure you have everything planned, or just get help from a good travel agent.
If you’re on a budget, it’s important to find the right 3 star Umrah package for a smooth, hassle-free trip. You can search the internet to get the best deal.
If you are traveling for the first time, it can be very difficult to find a good and affordable Umrah package among the many options. There are many good Umrah travel agencies in your area where you can get help. You can book with these companies online and then meet the agent in person. The travel agent will be able to advise you on which Umrah package best fits your budget.
Make a limit on your budget?
Many people don’t have a fixed budget to start with; they have an idea of how much they want to spend, but that’s about it. Or they come to me and say they want luxury on a low budget. So, when you look to go on Umrah Travelling, think about the limit of your budget already.
Look for the package that fits your budget?
There are many things to consider before choosing an Umrah package. You have to be specific about your needs and especially your budget. You can choose between two types of Umrah packages: individual packages, which are slightly more expensive, or you can opt for a group Umrah package. Both options are valid if you are looking for a large number of Umrah packages.
With a group Umrah package, the cost per person is the lowest. This is a good option if you want to reduce the cost of your Umrah trip. However, you will still need to share your room with other members. If you want your privacy, you can opt for an individual Umrah package.
Will you visit Medina City?
It is important to know if you go to Medina or Makkah when doing Umrah. Sometimes, especially during rush hour, it’s best to fly to Medina. The Medina airport is relatively small and is close to the Nabawi Mosque. The mosque is usually located less than 30 minutes from the airport, making it an easy first destination.
The new train between Mecca and Medina takes less than three hours in total, making it even easier to travel with children and seniors.
When should I leave for the Umrah pilgrimage?
Umrah is possible all year round, but most people prefer to observe this sacred event during Ramadan. During this month, Allah gives all things a chance. This means that Umrah in Ramadan is much more auspicious.
Please book in advance.
This is the best way to get the best deals and services for Umrah. Book your Umrah in advance or during the low season. You can get very cheap Umrah packages after Hajj or after Ramadan. As mentioned above, airline tickets, visa formalities, and accommodation reservations take time. Therefore, if you want to stay within your budget, you should avoid last-minute bookings. Last-minute bookings mean the job is done quickly and you have to pay extra.
Best time to perform Umrah currently.
Umrah is possible all year round, but most people prefer to perform this sacred event during Ramadan. During this month, Allah gives all things a chance. This means that Umrah in Ramadan is much more auspicious.
Travel companies are the best.
A travel company can be of great help in managing this sacred journey. If you are doing an Umrah for the first time, you need to get the assistance of a good travel company. They will take care of everything on your behalf.
Most people who are embarking on a trip have no idea of the challenges of completing paperwork, booking the perfect flight and finding a good hotel. An Umrah package from a good tour operator will take all these problems out of the equation. It means you don’t have to worry about all these needs. These companies will guide you throughout your journey.
We should be clear about this. Last year, seven million pilgrims visited Saudi Arabia, so there is no low season unless you can make the pilgrimage when most of the country is closed. This only happens after the Hajj. It is not possible to travel on a tourist visa.
