Guide 101: Umrah Package

Umrah Package gives you a great opportunity to experience many different things; to go through the Holy places and to enjoy your time with friends and families. It’s said that the Hajj and Umrah pilgrimage is one of the five pillars of Islam. It’s a religious requirement for all Muslims who are physically and financially able to do so. For those who don’t know, it involves walking around the Kaaba seven times at an interval between each circuit, while reciting prayers. The pilgrim then walks from Mecca to Mina where he or she throws pebbles at three different pillars (jamarāt) representing Satan; this symbolizes him being stoned in hell by Allah after his refusal to bow down before Adam. They walk back from Mina to Mecca where they run between two hills which represent Safa and Marwa; these two hills were originally part of a valley from the desert, where Hajar (mother of Ismael) ran from Mecca to Mina and back again in search for water for her son.

Type of Travel

Are you taking the trip with your family? Or maybe a group of friends? You can choose from two different types of travel plans: Full Tour Package & Direct Flights Plan. If you choose to fly to Saudi Arabia on your own, it might take a little bit more time and effort when it comes to securing flights, arranging visas, and booking accommodations. On the other hand, if you purchase an Umrah package from a travel agency in your area or online, they will take care of everything for you!

The Outline

Before paying for an Umrah package deal, make sure that you’re well aware of what is included in the plan. You can either get a complete tour/package that covers all aspects of the trip including lodging, transportation to and from airports and destinations, meals during the stay, etc. or fly to Saudi Arabia on your own without any assistance from travel representatives via direct flights. If you choose a package deal, it might be cheaper than flying on your own because the tour organizer will have negotiated discounted prices from different service providers. You can also pick and choose certain parts of the journey via an Umrah trip if you’re not interested in certain services such as meals or car rentals. However, keep in mind that travel agents often give special deals for complete packages so try to compare prices before making a decision. The most common type of travel plan includes:


The accommodation provided by a good Umrah Operator should meet all your expectations and reasonable needs even if you’re traveling with a large group. Hotels should be both centrally located and clean; sure they offer free access to wifi and cable TV, but don’t make a final decision until you check the prices as well.


You can choose from a selection of packages including full or half board during your visit. Generally, hotels provide breakfast and dinner with their accommodations while some may also include lunch as well, especially if it’s part of a tour package that includes sightseeing tours for guests to explore the surrounding area outside the city center. If you’re looking for cheap deals on Umrah packages then try to look beyond accommodation costs because food is generally expensive in Saudi Arabia!


Most travel agents will offer direct transfers from King Abdulaziz International Airport (KSA) or other transportation hubs within Makkah or Madinah. Unlike your transport to and from the airports, your hotel staff will often arrange these direct transfers for you as part of a package deal.


Every city has its own unique charm which many travelers take advantage of by booking tours to explore the surrounding areas either during or after their Umrah pilgrimage tour. This is especially true if you want to visit places such as Jeddah, Taif, and Mina; where they provide additional sightseeing opportunities before heading back to Makkah for another round of prayers at the Holy Mosque (Masjid Al-Haram).


Always remember that well-known travel agencies or tour operators with excellent reviews can sometimes give cheaper deals than those who are new to the business.
