Every year, numerous Muslims from various corners of the world visit the holy city of Makkah to perform their Umrah. When compared to the major pilgrimage of Hajj, it is called the 'lesser pilgrimage' or the 'minor pilgrimage'. As Hajj is one of Islam's five pillars, it is a major pilgrimage and obligatory for all Muslims who are physically and financially capable of performing it. Umrah is not compulsory, but since it is the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), it is an opportunity for the Muslims to earn the spiritual rewards associated with the pilgrimage.

Just like all the other Muslims living in different parts of the world, the ones residing in the United Kingdom also dream of performing their minor pilgrimage. Many of them have to postpone their plans of making this sacred journey to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia owing to budget concerns. As the journey from their place of residence in the UK to the holy city of Makkah involves a significant amount of cost, it is often unaffordable for most of the UK Muslims. However, they can bring down the costs involved to some extent by booking the cheap Umrah packages offered by some of the travel companies or tour operators based in the country.

Before they book their packages with any of the tour operators or travel companies that offer the Islamic religious tours, it is necessary to know whether the company is authorised by the Saudi Hajj Ministry. Once it is confirmed that the travel company or tour operator is authorised by Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Hajj, the next step is to get an affordable package. Today most of them have an online presence in the form of user-friendly and attractive websites. Among the available packages, there is a possibility of having cheap Umrah packages if the prospective pilgrims go through the packages in detail.

If they are unable to find the affordable Umrah packages offered by the travel companies on their websites, it is advisable to book any of their desired packages several months in advance. Before making a booking well in advance, it is important that the prospective pilgrims are certain about their date of departure and the number of days that they intend to spend in the holy city of Makkah. Once they have decided their dates, they can go ahead and book their preferred package several months earlier and get a significant amount of savings.

There are some high-end packages offered by the UK-based tour operators or travel companies on their websites for those who are not concerned about their budgets. A few such websites have these packages placed in the 5-Star category, as they have accommodations arranged for the pilgrims in any of the 5-Star hotels of Makkah. Most of them are located close to the Masjid al-Haram, which gives pilgrims booking these packages great convenience in getting to the holy mosque and performing all the rituals. The modern amenities offered in these hotels also make staying in them a pleasant and memorable experience.
