Umrah Package is a pilgrimage where a person has to be called upon by Allah. It is believed that when Allah the most Gracious invites someone to Umrah, he gives them a chance to repent for their sins and wish for whatever their deep heart desires. It is basically visiting Makkah for the completion of certain rights which will then complete the lesser pilgrimage called “Umrah”. Lucky are those who get to visit Allah’s house again and again. It is a way to refresh imaan, seek forgiveness, and gain closeness to Allah the Greatest.
Every Muslim wishes to be blessed with an opportunity to visit the Kabatullah Shareef with their family. They do it for the Sole purpose and intent of attainment of the pleasure of Allah Subhanahu. When planning for your pilgrimage there are thousands of questions running in mind, one of them being How to choose an Umrah package? There are not a few words to answer this question. It all depends on multiple factors. Listed below are a few pointers which will help you in making the decision.
Research and Development (RND):
Search for Umrah packages and tour operators in the market and what they have to offer you in general. Read blogs regarding how to perform, prepare, and plan for your pilgrimage.

There are several agencies which have multiple Umrah tours available to be booked. So make sure to do your RND in the best possible manner before booking to avoid regrets.
Cost Factor for Considering an Umrah Package:
There are several Cheap Umrah packages that are all-inclusive. They include all the necessary arrangements and amenities required in both Makkah and Medina as well for a smooth pilgrimage. These packages normally have accommodation in the hotels which are in the vicinity of Masjid Al-Haram and Masjid Al-Nabawi, air tickets, visa arrangements, food, a group leader who is 24/7 available for your assistance and guidance etc throughout your journey. So it is not necessary for you to have a high budget. You can have a normal or low budget and still enjoy all the services at very reasonable prices.
You can choose from various cost-effective Vacation Umrah packages.
There are several long weekends that can be utilised too. A chance to cleanse your soul without having to worry about work. Diwali vacation, Eid-e-Milad, Shab-e-Meraj, Shab-e- Baraat, Gyarvi, Low season Umrah, Christmas, etc are normally the time when there are multiple tours organised. These occasions allow you to embark on an Umrah vacation journey to Kaaba. Here you can spend time with your family making beautiful memories, all while gaining closeness to Allah.
It is a well-known factor that Saudi Arabia has a very hot climate. Summers there last for four and a half months i.e. May to October. July is the Hottest month of the year there. The temperature is normally somewhere between 38 degrees Celsius to 50 degrees Celsius. This climate is too hot for many to handle and many even get nose bleeds due to this hot temperature. The Ideal months to travel to Umrah are November to January. The temperature starts reducing from October hence October to February can also be considered.
Amenities to Look for in an Umrah Package:
Various Tour operators offer many different amenities. Of which basic ones are food, travel, accommodation, visa and flight tickets. There are many more like transportation, laundry, Zamzam, umrah kit, ziyarat, buffet meals, wheelchairs, guidance, etc which can be checked for in the package. Again comes the point of those who promise a lot but can’t fulfil any. So beware!
The number of days:
It is very important to decide the number of days you travel. It not only decides the cost of your package but various other things. There are various packages available ranging from 4 days to 1 month. 14 days to 25 days are the most popular ones since majorly people travel for this duration.

Which tour operator to choose:
The last and most important point to consider. People going to Umrah need to get in touch with licensed agencies for their travel. Always look into the credibility of the agency you plan to travel with. There are many new ones which open in the market every year. They offer very cheap prices to attract people and then later thug them. It is always better to look into the credibility of the agency you book while you look into the amenities so that you know that you are entrusting your hard-earned money into the right hands and you will get what you have paid for.
It is best to book with an old agency since they are trustworthy and also their experience in the field makes them better options. They are here due to the trust they have created amongst the people.
