However, they should go with saving hands which are offering the incredible package of December Umrah Packages UK with exceptions such as cheap but luxury accommodation very near to Al-Haram, admirable transport and much more flawless.

Stories of Hajj Fraud

Up to 25,000 UK based Muslims travel to Saudi Arabia to perform the major pilgrimage (Hajj) every year ...
... spending an estimated £125m. For that purpose, pilgrims save for years to finance the typical three-week trip.

The Khan family said that they had spent £4,000 a head to go to Saudi Arabia through agents but when they had arrived in Mecca they had been disconnected into their different genders and had forced to share very poor rooms with strangers including one decaying bathroom for eight people.

Ahmed Ali Minhas from Coventry is another victim who was promised four-star lodging, but he was cheated by agents and what he got was a far cry from that. He said that he had paid £12,000 for his family consisting of himself, his wife and his son to visit Mecca and had been promised four-star hotel accommodation but they had found themselves in contaminated environments and far off distance from the Grand Mosque than promised.

He added that the tour operator had rented crumpled means of transportation to transport them to other residences. They had been waiting three hours in the Jeddah streets in the coach with no water and food, and there had been no proper place to offer prayer. The flights home included a 17-hour stopover in Beirut, for which they had been promised hotel rooms. But when they had arrived they had not anything. They had been forced to just wait in the airport where the shops would only take US dollars, and they had none, and no way of getting any. When they had decided to return after performing the Hajj the things had been the same.

Tariq Khan and his family said that they had paid more than £16,000 to agents to perform the hajj but they had sharing a hotel bedroom with strangers and having to use filthy toilets and kitchens. Tariq Khan added that several returning victims had failed to complain because they were unaware of their rights. Besides, travel agents can manage to convince them that it will somehow “cheapen” the hajj experience.

The pilgrims' group from Rochdale in Greater Manchester complained that they had been ripped-off by one of the many deceitful travel agents that appear to a victim on the UK Muslim community. In the hotels in which they had dwelled had found naked wires coming out from the air conditioning and there was no facility to sit and to eat. The hotel was not for human staying overall. There had been more than sixty people in our group, and everyone had complained.

However, Khalid Pervez, the head of Association of British pilgrims the UK said that numerous of those making the trip are being denied the basic consumer and travel protections to which they are entitled – and that the authorities have shown little interest in tackling the problem.
