What To Expect From Budget-friendly Umrah Packages | January, 2022

What to Expect from Budget-friendly Umrah Packages

In this article, I will explain what to expect from budget-friendly Umrah packages. There are many factors that affect the cost of your umrah, such as the time of year you’re travelling to Saudi Arabia, what kind of accommodation you need during your stay in Makkah and Madinah, whether or not you want transportation with your package deal, etc. All these factors will influence the price of your Umrah package. However, if you are looking for a budget-friendly package with great benefits then there are many options available for you.

How to prepare for a successful Umrah experience

It may be hard to find the time to prepare for your Umrah, but it’s always worth it in the end. Here are some tips to help make sure you enjoy your Umrah experience:

1) Keep in mind that religion is about how you feel, not what you do

So if you’re feeling anxious about whether or not what you’re doing is right, remember religion is about your intention. The Prophet Mohamed (PBUH) said “He who does what he can and strives his utmost with sincerity will be rewarded.” So just keep trying!

2) Take time to pray often

Praying five times a day while praying at Arafat, performing Hajj or Umrah is an essential pillar of Islam. To listen to the Azaan (call to prayer) in this holy place and respond is a really spiritual experience.

3) Eat and drink!

When travelling for Umrah it’s easy to be overwhelmed by all the new experiences, sights, smells and sounds around you. This can make you hungry or dehydrated even when you weren’t before. To help stay nourished and hydrated, start each day by drinking lots of water- approximately five glasses. Three hours before your meal, eat something light like fruit or salad to give you energy for the rest of the day. And then try not to overeat during meals- slow down, chew your food properly and don’t eat too much.

Make sure to try lots of different foods- Saudi Arabia is a mix of many cultures, so you can find all sorts of food here.

4) Don’t forget about the sun!

The desert environment makes it easy for you to forget about putting sunscreen on, but make sure you protect yourself from the sun. Wear a hat and shirt with sleeves. Also, you may not realise how much your eyes need protection from the sun in Saudi Arabia because it’s so bright! So bring sunglasses and make sure to avoid looking at the sun directly.

Also, try to stay away from crowded places when possible because it’s easy for heat stroke or exhaustion to sneak up on you.

Tips on how to find the right budget-friendly package for your needs

If you are going to be travelling during the low season, then you should consider budget-friendly Umrah packages. However, it’s important to think about what your needs are and the kind of Umrah package that would cater to those needs. For example, a budget-friendly package might not include transportation from Makkah to Medina or from Madinah to Jeddah. If you need transportation, then this will increase the price.

Additionally, when looking for a budget-friendly option for your Umrah package, it’s also important to look at the different times of the year when packages would be cheaper in comparison with others because there is a higher demand in comparison to low seasons.

For instance, during the month of Ramadan where there is a lot of demand for Umrah packages due to many people wanting to go for Hajj or Umrah that month. Likewise, you can expect prices to increase during school holidays, weekends and public holidays when demand goes up even more.

Final thoughts about going on a pilgrimage in the holy month of Ramadan

In my opinion, going on a pilgrimage in the holy month of Ramadan is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. It is a chance to show gratitude for everything Allah has given us and to appreciate how difficult it was for our Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) in his journey from Makkah to Madinah. It also gives us the opportunity to get closer to Allah.

For those who have been on an Umrah before, you know that this blessed journey is not as simple as it sounds. There are a lot of preparations involved and expenses to take care of. Transportation, food, lodging… one can never fully prepare for all the challenges that may come up during the trip. This is why it can be intimidating to go on an Umrah when you have a tight budget. 

However, the best thing about the month of Ramadan is that Allah makes things easier for us when we sincerely seek to do good in His path.
