Frequent Asked Questions

Will there be religious guidance during the Hajj Trip?
Yes. No matter which package you choose, a religious guide will accompany the group. At the same time we advise
that you are fully aware of the Hajj or Umrah rituals prior to departure, according to your specific beliefs or sect, as
we take no responsibility for this.

Types of Hajj?
There are three ways of performing the Hajj

  • Hajj al-Tamattu
  • Hajj al-Ifrad
  • Hajj al-Qiran

The Hajj we perform?
Hajj al-Tamattu'. Involves performing Umrah and then Hajj, with one Ihram for each.
This form of Hajj is considered the best of three forms of Hajj. It is the one that the Prophet Muhammad (peace be
upon him) urged his followers to perform and is the one adopted by most pilgrims from overseas.
Money, Currency & Exchange Rate?
The local currency in Saudi Arabia is Saudi Riyals. Exchange rates vary from time to time so should be checked prior
to travel. Current rates are between 5 & 6 riyals. Visa and MasterCard are accepted at ATMS for withdrawals also.
The amount of money one should carry does vary from one person to another. We recommend an amount of £500
to cover general expenses.

Medical Emergency or illness?
First aid will be available within our group. Medical Facilities such as hospitals and temporary clinics are available in
Saudi Arabia as well as access to Pharmacies. We do recommend that you carry any specific medications with you
that suitable cover of travel insurance is in place.
