Get Umrah Package Deals to Make Lesser Pilgrimage Affordable

by Safeena Rahman Travel Addict

Muslims residing in different corners of the globe dream of performing two pilgrimages in their lifetime. One is Hajj, which is one of Islam's five pillars and a major pilgrimage mandatory for all the financially capable and physically fit Muslims. The other one is Umrah, also called the 'lesser pilgrimage' or the 'minor pilgrimage'. Although performing Umrah is not an obligation, many choose to undertake this pilgrimage from their place of residence to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia as it is the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him).

 

In recent times, the lesser pilgrimage is made possible for Muslims residing in countries other than the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia with packages for Umrah that are provided by many of the tour operators or travel companies. The occasional Umrah package deals that are offered by such travel companies help the prospective pilgrims in making their journey to the holy city of Makkah in Saudi Arabia easy and affordable. Over the past few years, these packages have become a boon for those who often end up postponing their visit to Makkah owing to budget concerns. Most of the travel companies or tour operators also have an online presence today in the form of attractive and mobile-friendly websites.

 

The Umrah packages UK tour operators offer give the country's Muslims the opportunity to choose a package best-suited to their budget. Upon making comparisons between the overall costs provided by different travel companies online for the packages, they can easily identify a suitable one for their journey to the holy city. The UK Muslims can also reduce the cost of their packages to a great extent if they book a desired package several months in advance. Most of the tour operators are often willing to offer significant reductions in the overall cost of their packages if they are booked much earlier.

 

Just like there are several offers made by the travel companies every year to encourage bookings, the Umrah packages 2019 has in store for the UK's prospective pilgrims would also have many offers. However, before going ahead with the bookings, Muslims living in the country must make sure that they choose the right travel company. While there are many tour operators in the country, not all of them may be truly reliable. As it is mandatory for a company or travel agent to have an authorisation from Saudi Arabia's Hajj ministry, the Muslims of the country must see to it that the company they are booking their package with is authorised by the Ministry of Hajj, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

 

Some of the Muslims residing in the UK may not have any budget concerns and can go for the high-end packages. There are certain packages that provide accommodations in the elegant 5-star hotels of Makkah that are located close to the Masjid al-Haram. Upon booking any of such packages, they can not only have the privilege of staying closer to the holy mosque but also have great convenience in getting there and performing all the Umrah rituals.
