Easter Umrah Packages Can Now Be Made Affordable

by Safeena Rahman Travel Addict

There are certain times in a year when the Muslims residing in the United Kingdom can have the opportunity of making a journey to the holy city of Makkah in Saudi Arabia to perform Umrah. One such time is Easter when the offices and educational institutions across the country are closed and the country’s prospective pilgrims can accomplish their lesser pilgrimage. Over the years, many of the UK Muslims have used this wonderful opportunity to embark on a memorable journey to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for performing Umrah. However, there are still many in the country who are not able to do so owing to budget concerns.

For such individuals, the opportunities for Umrah Easter season brings in the form of cost-effective packages offered by the tour operators or travel companies based in the UK can be extremely helpful. Over the past few years, many such tour operators providing religious tours of Hajj and Umrah have come up in various parts of the country. In recent times, they also have an online presence in the form of attractive and user-friendly websites. All the packages available with them are listed on these sites and classified according to their overall costs and the seasons or months for which they are being offered.

In order to book the Easter Umrah packages, the UK Muslims must first choose a reliable travel company or tour operator. While there are many of them spread across the country, it is essential that they book only with the one that is approved by the Ministry of Hajj, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Once they have chosen a travel company or tour operator authorised by the Saudi Hajj Ministry, the next step would be to book a package for Umrah that is best-suited to their budget. This can be done by going on the website of the travel company and browsing through the available packages until a budget-friendly package is identified and booked.

An Umrah in Easter can be made affordable by booking a suitable package well in advance. Before booking, it is absolutely necessary to decide the date of departure and the number of days that would be spent in Makkah. Once all the dates are decided, the booking can be done several months earlier to have greater savings on the chosen package. Most of the travel companies offer great discounts on bookings that are made in advance.

Pilgrims can utilise the savings thus made by visiting the shopping centres of Makkah and buying some attractive souvenirs. They can also use the amount saved for visiting the important Islamic sites located in the holy city and its surroundings. One of them is a sacred mountain known as Jabal al-Noor. It is home to the ‘Cave of Hira’ where Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) had spent a considerable amount of time in deep contemplation. Another place worth visiting is Mount Arafat, which is also known as Jabal al-Rahmah. This mountain is the place where The Almighty Allah had forgiven the first prophet Adam (peace be upon him) for his sin.
