    Well, since umrah is only performed by muslims that would make sense, wouldn`t it?

    I'm happy with Rizo's clarification.

    It looks like they aren't ABTA bonded,so be sure to pay by credit card.

    Ah, you're still here.

    Bro;

    Look here: hajinformation.com/umr…php

    It depends on price, accomodation, and transport etc. What price are they asking? If you are looking to go in the summer, it is high season because of school holidays and too because of Ramadan.

    Not sure why you want to consider travelling with a company operating from home, without any recommendation. If its price then I'm sure you'll know most such offers are too good to be true.

    I've heard numerous horror stories from people getting messed around at Umrah and Hajj by petty home companies.Hajj and Umrah are trips you want to cherish, best not to risk a miserable trip just to save a bit of money. Just my tuppence worth.

    whatever happens ,make sure you have aircon..............................howling..........................hot!

    The best thing to do is to speak to the people who are in charge.Visit them and talk to them about it and you will be able to tell wether there genuine or not.

    If they are IATA Registered they should be ok.Most people tend to go with travell agencies but from my own experiance people who run these busineses at home are usually reliable and they themselves will be in association with a travel agency themselves if anything goes wrong.

    InshAllah you'll have a safe trip there and complete your Umrah safely.

    Thanks for this. Seems quite a short list! Asking 3,100 for 15 nights 2 adults and 2 children including flights. About 1,200 for hotel which is good I think. Just worried I may send the money and never hear from them again!

    Yes I agree. I think I will go see them before transferring money over. Quite stressful really. I am travelling first time with two small children so just want to make sure they are fine. Jazakhala.

    Normally you only pay the price of the tickets in advance as they have to book and pay for them straight away (most tickets are non refundable ) and then the money for thehotel and.everything else nearer to the date you are flying .

    Seeing as you have kids I would advice you to go direct if your not already by saudi airlines as in direct flights can be a hassle


    Also check if travel is included in the price as most umrah operators provide people to pick you up from airport and take you to the hotel and from makkah to madinah.

    Why not shop around; you don't have to go with a local group, you can go with any group, because many groups fly from LHR and MAN for umrah so its okay.

    Obviously it depends which hotel you are staying in Madinah and Makkah.., Whats transport method from airport to these places if not landing in Madinah. Also during which dates?
