One of the Islamic pilgrimages undertaken to the holy city of Makkah by Muslims residing in various parts of the world is Umrah. Another pilgrimage accomplished by visiting Makkah is Hajj, which is a major Islamic pilgrimage and one of Islam's five pillars. Umrah is often referred to as the 'lesser pilgrimage' or the 'minor pilgrimage' when compared to Hajj. However, it has its own special place in the hearts of Muslims across the world as it is the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). There is no prescribed time for performing the lesser pilgrimage and it can be accomplished within a few hours.

A major cause of concern for Muslims living in the United Kingdom who intend to perform their minor pilgrimage is the cost involved in making the journey from their homes to Saudi Arabia’s holy city. There was a time when many of the Muslims residing in the country had to postpone their plans of performing Umrah due to lack of adequate finances, but now they can get cheap Umrah packages from some of the tour operators or travel companies. These are the ones who specialise in the religious tours of Hajj and Umrah and have a range of packages for different budgets.

Most of them have their own websites in recent times, which has made it easier for UK Muslims to choose their preferred package. The Umrah packages are arranged according to their costs and some specific seasons when the prospective pilgrims living in the UK can perform their minor pilgrimage with ease. There are some specific times of the year, such as Christmas and Easter, when almost all the offices, educational institutions, and other establishments are closed. Such holidays can be utilised by Muslims of the country to embark on their journey to Makkah for performing Umrah.

For those who wish to book an Umrah package with flights at an affordable cost, it is advisable to make the booking several months in advance. To get the booking done at a lower cost, they must plan the dates of their lesser pilgrimage much earlier. Once they are certain about the date of departure and the number of days that they would like to spend in the holy city of Makkah, they can browse through the packages on the websites of travel companies. Upon going through the packages, they can book a package that is best-suited to their budgets and travel preferences.

Those individuals who are not concerned about the costs involved in performing the lesser pilgrimage can book any of the high-end packages. Such packages are often placed in the five-star category on the websites of tour operators offering the Islamic religious tours of Hajj and Umrah. The prospective pilgrims who book any of these packages get to stay in a five-star hotel located close to the Masjid al-Haram. Besides this, they can also have a comfortable stay during their time spent in the holy city owing to the excellent facilities offered in these hotels.
