Just like we plan for events in our professional and personal lives, we also plan for the afterlife – and what better way to do so than with a spiritual trip to Makkah?
If your New Year’s resolutions include travelling for Umrah, try these useful tips and tricks from Shaza Makkah for a smooth travel experience.
- Choose Your Company
Whether you are travelling with friends or family this trip is a special experience that will strengthen your bond and help you create beautiful memories together. Start by choosing the right time to travel, apply for an entry visa to the Kingdom, and book your flights and accommodation at Shaza Makkah.
- Pick the Right Time
Every job has peak times, so when you’re choosing your vacation days, opt for a time of year when business is usually slow. Even though Shaza Makkah features a fully-equipped business centre, you’ll make the most of your spiritual trip when your mind is completely focused on strengthening your bond with God rather than pending emails and incoming business calls.
- Plan the Financials
Your budget should include flights and train rides, accommodation, transportation within the Kingdom, food and daily expenses, and souvenirs and gifts. By planning those elements ahead, you can enjoy your trip without worrying about financial issues.
- Book in Advance
The phrase “the early bird gets the worm” is not just an expression; take advantage of the Early Bird offers on the Shaza Makkah website and get 20% off a variety of luxury rooms and suites simply by booking in advance.
Don’t leave packing to the last minute! A week before your travel date, make a list of everything you’ll need, including clothing, personal items and Ihram clothing. Keep a to-do list at hand to make sure you’re fully prepared for your trip.
- Commit to Your Itinerary
Not only should you schedule alarms for waking up and heading to the airport, but you should also schedule alarms for your flight’s boarding time so you can stay on track if any last-minute emergencies occur.
We wish you a wonderful trip to Makkah, and we’re waiting for you at Shaza Makkah to help you enjoy a spiritual experience that you will forever treasure in your heart!
