Umrah is one of the pilgrimages that Muslims across the world perform by visiting the holy city of Makkah located in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. As it is lesser in importance compared to the major pilgrimage of Hajj, it is also referred to as the 'lesser pilgrimage'. Hajj is one of Islam's five pillars and is an obligation for all the able-bodied and financially capable Muslims. When it comes to the lesser pilgrimage, there is no such compulsion. However, it is highly recommended in Islam, as it is the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). It can be performed at any time during the year and can be accomplished within a few hours.

There was a time when Muslims had to depend on a tour operator specialising in Islamic religious tours and located close to their homes to get their journey to Makkah arranged. As this involved a significant amount of cost, most of them kept postponing their plans for performing the lesser pilgrimage. In recent times, more numbers of Muslims have been able to perform their pilgrimage owing to the Umrah packages offered by many tour operators. Over the years, the costs of such packages have considerably reduced as well, mainly due to competition among the tour operators offering such packages.

Muslims wanting to perform the lesser pilgrimage can get their ideal package by comparing the best packages available online. This can be done by looking for the most affordable packages on the popular search engines. Online searches are now easier than ever before with the use of smartphones and the availability of internet on them at unbelievably lower costs. A single search made online for such packages would give Muslims several options to choose from. Based on their budget and travel preferences, they can choose the best package and make their booking instantly.

Another great way of reducing the cost of packages and having more savings for the journey is by booking the desired package several months in advance. In this case, the prospective pilgrims must have the dates ready much earlier. They must decide their date of departure and the number of days they wish to spend in the holy city of Makkah months earlier for booking a package in advance. Once the dates have been decided, they can go ahead with their booking and get a significant amount of discount on the chosen package.

Registering on the websites of tour operators that are known for their cost-effective packages for Umrah would allow Muslims to receive alerts on the best deals and special offers that are made available from time to time. Such alerts are sent in the form of emails or text messages by these tour operators. Although it would get quite irritating deleting all those unwanted emails and messages, the Muslims wanting to perform their Umrah would come across an irresistible offer at times. This would help them in fulfilling their dream of performing the lesser pilgrimage without worrying about the costs involved.
