Booking of Umrah packages in best times

by Ady Grewal Content writer
Basically, there are two prominent Ibadah like major and minor pilgrimages which commonly known as Hajj and Umrah. When it comes to Hajj, so it is obligatory for every capable Muslim once in his life that is performed every year in the month of Dhul Hajj. As a very large number of people go to Hajj every year and each year the number of pilgrims increases, so the bookings of Hajj are made well in advance. As for as Umrah is concerned, so it is different because it can be performed at any time of the year. However, the peak seasons of umrah performing are the months of Rabi-ul-Awal, Shaban, and Ramadan. Most people make their arrangements in the Holy month of Ramadan to get the Hajj’s equal reward. Because the Messenger of God said that performing Umrah in Ramadan is equal to Hajj to reward.  

The current rules of the Saudi Government allow people to perform Umrah but they must book their Umrah with authorized and licensed Umrah agents in their local countries. This not only allows the pilgrim to book their complete package with flight bookings but also accommodation, transportation, and other facilities. According to new riles the pilgrims are not allowed to go for Umrah without booking with an Umrah agent. There are numbers of Hajj and Umrah packages which are offered by several agents all over the world. Such packages are found in the range from budget-friendly packages to 5-star luxury packages. As the Umrah seasons start the agents usually get overbooked especially for the month of Ramadhan. People make these bookings well in advance to avoid the congestion of flights, hotel and accommodation bookings in Makkah and very near to the Al-Haram. So that’s why the hotels which are near the Grand Mosque are booked months in advance.

The best time to book Umrah package is after the Hajj season such as Moharam or Saffar. During these spells, most of the Pilgrims book their packages with their agents. In this way, people get a good opportunity to book hotels, flights, and transport in Makkah and Madinah. Yet they must consult a trustworthy agent who is well aware of umrah packages prices completely for individuals or groups. To avoid certain hassles of high prices of accommodation and flights it is always preferable to book a package with a reputable and registered Umrah agent. Since the Saudi Government has imposed new rules for Umrah and Hajj service providers to meet the standards set by the management, so pilgrims should not take any risk and must consult the authentic platform. 

Both pilgrimages either Umrah or Hajj must be performed with concentration and devotion and booking well in advance will give people the chance to have a hassle-free sacred journey to Makkah and Madinah. Additionally, pilgrims can more focus on their prayers rather than worrying about the hotel or return flights. Agents who are responsible regarding booking always advise their clients to book their Umrah packages during the months of Moharram and Saffar. However, they can also get last-minute bookings which may cost a bit more in flights and accommodation, yet pilgrims will be able to perform religious obligation with full devotion.
