4 Effective Strategies to Reduce the Cost of Umrah Packages

by Safeena Rahman Travel Addict

Millions of Muslims across the world are always on the lookout for some great deals that the tour operators specialising in Islamic religious tours provide for helping the prospective pilgrims perform their Umrah. Over the years, such special offers have been instrumental in fulfilling the dreams of many who wish to perform this pilgrimage. As almost all the tour operators have their online presence today in the form of user-friendly websites, Muslims residing in different corners of the world can browse through the packages offered on the website of their nearest tour operator and make their booking without any hassles.

The best way to get Umrah packages at an affordable cost is to book several months in advance. However, before going ahead with the booking, it is necessary that the prospective pilgrims decide their date of departure and the number of days they intend to spend in the holy city of Makkah before returning to their place of origin. Once the dates are decided, they can book their chosen package well in advance and save a significant amount on their booking. The savings made while booking their chosen package months earlier can then be utilised later when they are in Makkah for their pilgrimage.

Another great way for the prospective pilgrims to get their desired packages booked at a lower cost is to make comparisons between the packages that are available online. Usually, this begins with an online search made on any of the popular search engines.  While searching online for such packages, one can find a range of packages offered by several tour operators. Upon making a detailed comparison between the most cost-effective packages, one would certainly find a package that is being offered at the lowest price as compared to the other packages. Before booking such a package, the prospective pilgrim must always verify the authenticity of the tour operator offering it.

Some of the tour operators may provide a significant amount of discount on group bookings for Umrah packages. Generally, such type of packages are not advertised on the websites of tour operators and are instead created as custom-made packages for the prospective pilgrims who wish to travel in a group along with others who want to perform the pilgrimage. The ones who wish to go for group bookings must communicate their available budget clearly to the travel company or tour operator they are booking with to get a customised group package at a lesser cost.

Registering on the websites of tour operators that are renowned for their cost-effective packages can also be a great idea. Upon signing-up on these sites, they would receive alerts on the attractive deals and special offers that are released by the tour operators from time to time. These alerts are sent in the form of emails and text messages. It would be quite a task to delete all those unwanted messages, but once in a while the prospective pilgrims who have registered for such alerts would receive just the kind of deal they have been looking for.
