December Umrah Packages are Ideal for UK Muslims

by Safeena Rahman Travel Addict

The holy city of Makkah is located in Saudi Arabia’s Hejazi region and is visited by millions of pilgrims every year for the pilgrimages of Hajj and Umrah. It experiences a desert climate, which means that it is extremely hot during the summer season with daytime temperatures exceeding the level of 40-Degree Celsius. Between the months of November and January, the city experiences small amounts of occasional rains. These rains are usually scant, but there have been certain periods in history when they increased in intensity and caused floods. In terms of daytime temperatures, December is one of the pleasant months, especially for those arriving in this city from the countries of Northern Europe.

For Muslims residing in the United Kingdom, this time of the year is ideal for embarking on a journey to Makkah in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. An Umrah in December would give them a wonderful opportunity to perform all the rituals associated with the lesser pilgrimage in the presence of a pleasant weather. The last week of December would be the best for making this sacred journey from their place of residence in the UK, as the offices and educational institutions in the country are closed for Christmas celebrations during this week. It would also give UK Muslims the chance to introduce the children in their family to Umrah and its rituals by taking them along for the lesser pilgrimage to Makkah.

Over the years, many travel companies or tour operators offering the religious tours of Hajj and Umrah have come up in different parts of the UK. This has given the country’s Muslims several choices for booking their December Umrah packages by considering their preferred dates of departure and the overall cost. Upon searching for the best available packages online, they get a number of options in the search results. They can, of course, choose a package that suits their budget; but, they also have to consider the reliability of the company they are booking with as well.

Muslims of the UK can reduce the overall cost of their packages and have greater savings for their journey by booking several months in advance. There are many tour operators or travel companies, which offer unbelievable discounts on Umrah packages from UK that are booked much earlier. The savings thus made can be utilised by the pilgrims during their stay in Makkah for buying souvenirs or visiting the important religious sites in and around the city.

In recent times, almost all the travel companies offering the packages for Umrah have an active presence on the internet with their user-friendly websites. The Muslims residing in the UK can visit these websites for detailed information about the packages, such as the cost and facilities offered for the pilgrims. Some of these travel companies classify the packages into different categories on their websites. The ones that have the lowest cost usually do not include flights departing from the UK. The packages that are offered at the highest cost are usually the ones that include flights as well as accommodation in any of the five-star hotels of Makkah.
