    Travelling to Makkah (Mecca) via DUBAI and Pakistan.

    This is a bit of a complicated request, I hope someone can help!

    I want to go Mecca (Makkah) for a mini pilgrimage in Feb/March, however I also want to do a stopover in Dubai and Islamabad.

    Can anyone recommend how best to utilise my travel plans to get it as cheap as possible. I think prices are coming in at around £850 plus. Alternatively if there are any other possible stopovers I could do, it would be most appreciated.

    For example, travelling via Manchester to Jeddah for 2 weeks, Jeddah to Dubai for about 4/5 nights, Dubai to Islamabad for 2 weeks and back from Islamabad to Manchester.

    I can only see Emirates who offer this. Does Saudi Airlines or any other carriers offer something Similar?

    Thanks!

    Hi there after doing a quick search on sky scanner, leaving Manchester to Jeddah about £261 one way that's with saudia, Jeddah to Dubai £83 with flynas one way then shaheen air to Islamabad one way is coming in at £73 then again shaheen air from Islamabad to Manchester is coming in at £268 obviously this will vary in dates but these were random dates starting from end of February to the end of March based on how long you wanted to stay. Total cost £685... Hope that helps

    upuntil march there are offers going on makkah and Dubai travels, don't know how it will work with pakistaan in the package, but there are flights to Saudi and Dubai for 2 weeks Saudi and 1 week Dubai for about 400

    Hi There. When you checking for flights to Jeddah just make sure that the flight you choose doesnt have restrictions. Last year i was booking umrah for Feb 2016 and some cheaper Saudi flights specifically said these are not valid for Umrah / Hajj on the booking website so just be wary of that

    plus I think there are new visa rules/prices coming into affect on the 1st October

    I think cheap shoes always help as your shows always go missing in the Kaaba/Haram-(Holy place for Muslims)
