Umrah Packages - FAQs

Is it possible for an individual to travel to the King of Saudi Arabia by themselves or must they travel within a tailor created package or group?

An individual may travel to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia by themselves or within a group which is any size as long as they don’t require a mahram. The only requirement is that all your accommodation needs to be pre-booked with a approved agent before departing from the United Kingdom.

What if I wish to cancel my booking after a full payment or deposit is transacted?

A deposit is always required prior to the visa authorisation application as this is a requirement by the Ministry of Hajj. Refunds can be given but this depends upon the conditions with the air ticket, transport and accommodation as in certain cases refunds cannot be given. As this all depends on the type of air ticket as we may be able to refund the ticket amount less a cancellation charge if authorized by the airline. If the ticket has not been issued by Panama Travel then there will be no cancellation charge.

Why should I travel with a group?

Here at Panama Travel we have groups going to perform Umrah every month with a group leader service.  It is a lot cheaper to travel in a group because here at Panama Travel we have very good relationships with hotels worldwide therefore we try to reduce prices through our bulk buying purchasing power. Accommodation, flights and transport is usually booked and reserved by Panama Travel 6-12 Months before departing.

Is it possible for myself to combine a stopover in another country when going to perform Umrah?

This is possible as Saudi Arabian airlines, Emirates and many other airlines offer many onward destinations at a small extra charge. Panama Travel can also book your accommodation worldwide. However you must enter the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia one month before the visa has been issued. For further information for onward destinations please call us.

What are the charges for children and infants?

If a child requires a bed within the hotel accommodation or a seat within the transportation then a full adult charge will be necessary. But if two young children share a bed then the cost will be divided and a 50% adult rate will be charged. If no accommodation or transportation facility is required then only the visa charge will be required. Airlines usually charge 60-70% of an adult fare for children plus taxes and 10-12% for infants.
