The Umrah is one of the most personal and memorable journeys you will ever take, which is why you must organise it to fit around your own needs and preferences.
One of the most common questions people have is whether to travel alone or in a group. It could be that your family and friends are not in a position to go with you and you really don’t want to wait any longer, or perhaps going by yourself is your choice. You may feel that being in a position to immerse yourself in this religious pilgrimage – and carry out your observances with 100% focus – will greatly enrich your Umrah.
The good news is that there is an Umrah package to suit all categories of traveller, including a choice of ways to travel alone for Umrah.
Freedom To Focus On What Matters
It is important to remember that by selecting to use an Umrah package, you are not just getting an off the shelf solution to your visa, travel and accommodation needs. You are also getting choice, and a lot of help in dealing with the practicalities. This frees you up to put your energies into your preparations and observances.
Making It Your Own
You could complete the whole pilgrimage without the company of others, or join up with a group of likeminded travellers to share the experience with them, if that is what you prefer. If you are a woman, then using the right Umrah package provider means you can easily find a mahram or group of women of a similar age.
For solo travel, you may prefer a single room. You can also select a hotel that suits your own interests and preferences; perhaps somewhere quieter, in a more peaceful location, or hotels that put you at the heart of Mecca.
There is no need to be self-conscious or concerned, either – the minute you arrive at your hotel, you will see that this is an experience that offers no boundaries for age or background. Everyone mingles together in a way that breaks down all perceived barriers, leaving you free to carry out your Umrah in a relaxed and immersive way.
