One of the Islamic pilgrimages undertaken by Muslims across the world, Umrah is also called the 'lesser pilgrimage' or 'minor pilgrimage'. They perform this pilgrimage by visiting the holy city of Makkah from their place of residence. Although this pilgrimage is lesser in importance when compared to the major pilgrimage of Hajj, it is the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) and provides immense spiritual benefits for the pilgrim performing it. Umrah is not an obligation for Muslims and can be accomplished within a few hours.

There was a time when Muslims living in countries located far from Saudi Arabia had to depend on their nearest travel agent to get their journey to the holy city arranged. Most of the individuals who wanted to perform their lesser pilgrimage had to keep postponing their journey to Makkah as the costs involved in these journeys were not affordable for them. In recent times, the Umrah packages offered by the tour operators or travel companies specialising in Islamic religious tours have brought down the costs of the journey to a considerable extent. As a result, many of the prospective pilgrims have been able to fulfil their dream of performing their lesser pilgrimage.

Almost all the tour operators and travel companies offering these packages have their website today. These sites are made mobile-friendly by most of the tour operators as the use of smartphones has increased to a great extent and so has the use of internet on these phones. All the available packages are displayed on these websites under different categories, which helps the prospective pilgrims in browsing the site and choosing their desired package. Once they select a package best suited to their budget, they can go ahead and make their booking.

Before booking any of the packages, it is always necessary to verify whether the tour operator has been authorised by Saudi Arabia's Ministry of Hajj and Umrah. Although there are numerous tour operators offering these Islamic religious tours across the world, not all of them may be authorised by the Ministry of Hajj and Umrah of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. It is also essential to check whether the tour operator has a good track record in customer service. This can be known by going through the online reviews that are posted by past customers. Only the tour operators with the maximum number of positive reviews from customers must be considered for booking the packages.

Upon booking any of the desired packages several months in advance, the Muslims intending to perform their Umrah can get a significant amount of discount. However, this can be done only when they decide their date of departure and the number of days they intend to spend in the holy city of Makkah much earlier. Once these dates are decided, they can go ahead and make their booking well in advance to have a greater amount of discount. They can then utilise the amount saved during their time spent in Makkah while visiting the important places in the holy city and buying souvenirs from the local shopping centres.
