Some Useful Ways of Getting Umrah Packages Booked for Less

by Safeena Rahman Travel Addict

Muslims residing in countries that are located at a greater distance from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia have to make a long journey from their homes to the holy city of Makkah for performing their Umrah, which is also known as the 'lesser pilgrimage'. There was a time when this journey was not affordable to many of them owing to the amount of cost involved. However, it has now been made cost-effective by the packages for this pilgrimage offered by a number of tour operators that have come up in various corners of the world. There are ways, by which, the prospective pilgrims can reduce the cost of such packages even further.

One of the popular ways of reducing the cost of Umrah packages is to book them well in advance. Upon booking these packages several months in advance, their costs can be reduced to a great extent, resulting in more savings for the pilgrim. Before booking a package for the lesser pilgrimage in advance, it is extremely necessary for the prospective pilgrims to decide certain things much in advance. They are the date of departure and the amount of time he or she wants to spend in the holy city of Makkah.

Another great way of getting a cost-effective package booked for the lesser pilgrimage is to book it under a special offer. The tour operators or travel companies specialising in the Islamic religious tours of Hajj and Umrah often come up with attractive deals or special offers that would help the prospective pilgrims book their package at a discounted cost. Such offers are usually released by them on special occasions, such as festivals or holiday seasons. These special offers are generally available only until a specific date and must be booked before they expire.

Popular search engines on the internet today can also help Muslims in getting a cost-effective package for performing their Umrah. Many of the tour operators advertise their packages on these search engines and they come up in searches made by the prospective pilgrims using their desktop or hand-held devices. They can compare the cost of packages offered by different tour operators and make comparisons between them. Upon comparing them, they would come across a package that can be a suitable one for them according to their available budget. It is also necessary to verify whether the tour operator offering the package has been authorised by the Hajj Ministry of Saudi Arabia.

Registering online on the websites of the most reliable tour operators can also be a great way to get the best deals on packages offered by them for Umrah. One just needs to fill a few of his or her details, such as the name and email ID, to sign-up for the special offers or deals. Some of the tour operators would also need the phone number along with the name and email ID. Once an individual is signed up on these websites, they would receive alerts on the special offers that are released from time to time.
