Tips for choosing your hajj package

All Muslims travel to hajji and umrah to purify them and untangle from all the sins and troubles. Every Muslim must travel to Hajj at least once in their lifetime if they are physically capable. There are specific dates between which individuals can visit Hajj i.e. on the 8th and 12th day of Dhu al Hijjah. During this month of Islamic calendar millions of Muslims all over the world travel to hajji. It is best to opt for hajj tours and choose the best package to travel pilgrims.

Choose the right travel company which has been registered by the Ministry of Hajj. Registered companies offer all the services from visa to accommodation. The package cost is less when compared to other travel companies that are not registered. The quality of services of such company is also not up to the mark to meet expectation of travellers. 

You can also choose any travel company apart from the one registered only if you have good reviews and have heard positive feedbacks about the company. 

It is advisable to ask for an Imam to travel along with you and group during your Hajj package. Once an Iman is travelling along with you, you need not have to face any kind of difficulty while performing the rituals or anywhere during the journey.

Pick for a convenient accommodation which is close to pilgrimage such that it is easy to travel for you from one place to another. 

Check what all is included in your hajj and umrah package. Make sure to check if the travel company offers sim cards as there will be a huge queue waiting to get sim cards, and in case of non-availability you might lose contact with the outer world.
