Author : British Hajj & Umrah Services | Published On : 22 Oct 2021

Hajj and Umrah is the pilgrimage to Mecca in Saudi Arabia that Muslims must do at least once in their lives. The Hajj is considered one of the largest gatherings in the world, with millions of people performing these rituals every year. However, every individual planning to achieve it should make sufficient arrangements and choose packages suiting the requirements.

What is Hajj Package?

Hajj packages are travel packages used by Muslim pilgrims to perform Hajj in Mecca and Medina, Saudi Arabia. These usually include hotel accommodations, transportation between cities or airports, tour guides and food services. The price for this package consists of all aspects of the pilgrimage except personal expenses such as tips for porters and restroom attendants—this would be an addition to the actual package price. Women travelling alone on the Haj package sometimes choose a group of women only bills without having any male companion.

Types of Packages

  • The accommodation is one of the most critical components of the Hajj package, especially when more people are performing Hajj in Mecca at the same time. There are both expensive and inexpensive options available for every budget range of pilgrims. However, regardless of their prices, all accommodations must meet Islamic requirements, including cleanliness, a sound ventilation system, and protection from insects.
  • Hajj packages also provide special services for women pilgrims, including separate bathrooms or even private bathrooms if they can afford it.
  • Usually, people will take flights to reach Mecca or Medina after they arrive in Saudi Arabia. A bus runs every 15 minutes between the Holy Mosque in Mecca and Al-Haram (the Sacred Mosque) in Medina, where most of Hajj is performed.
  • Hajj packages are available for different types of travellers depending on their preferences, needs and budget range. It is possible to book a Hajj package alone. Still, people who wish to travel with family members usually hire private tour guides by paying more than they would pay if they purchased the same service through the agency offering Hajj packages. Smaller numbers of Muslim pilgrims often prefer travelling together by themselves.
  • Large groups who want to perform the pilgrimage together with other families, friends, or fellow mosque members frequently hire travel agencies to make the necessary arrangements. The agents can brief you on different packages, their budget etc.
  • Hajj packages are usually inclusive of round-trip airfare from major cities in Saudi Arabia, transportation from and to airports, and hotel accommodations for various levels of comfort.
