Umrah is a religious activity performed by the Muslims. For Umrah, Muslims from all around the world travel to Saudi Arabia. They wear a special dress to perform Umrah, called Ihram.

1. A separate category in travel

There are a lot of categories of travelling like adventure travelling, business travelling, honeymoon travelling, holiday travelling and etc. But because the number of people who travel for Umrah is higher, therefore, there has been introduced a new category named commonly Umrah travelling. There are different agencies which name it differently, some use religious travelling, some call it Pilgrimages but the most commonly used one is Umrah travelling.

According to Statista, on average there are 15.76 million people who travel to Saudi Arabia every year and this number is expected to be over 20 million people annually by 2020.

3. Cheap Fight Packages

As the number of people who travel to Saudi Arabia is high. Therefore, the travel companies and air travel companies attract the customers by setting lower prices. More flights and fewer charges charged from the customers ultimately increases the profits of the travel companies.

4. Month of Zilhajj

The month of Zilhajj is that special month in which the Muslims perform the religious obligation of Hajj. According to Statista, about 2.4 million people performed Hajj in the month of Zilhajj. As this month is considered sacred in the religion of Islam that is why people try to perform Umrah near or during this month to get more reward from God. This month is also a reason that everyone starts talking about cheap Umrah packages.

5. Increase in the number of hotels in Saudi Arabia

As there is a large number of people who travel to Mecca and Medina every year, therefore there are so many hotel plazas constructed in these cities, especially near Mecca. These hotel owners deal by contracting with online travel agencies and provide the required packages. Those hotels which are located near Mecca or Medina, provide convenience to foreign visitors who do not know Arabic, which is the reason that they charge more.
