When is the quieter time to go for Umrah?

Makkah and Medina are always busy and full of people.

So it's always a good idea to look for quieter times, especially if you are travelling with older people or young children, or if you have the freedom to do so.

I'd rather go when it's not too busy, but that sweet spot is getting harder to find.

At the beginning of the season, Ramadan Umrah Packages From London will not be as busy. So, let's say from Muharram 1 until about the middle of December (of course depending on the year and how it moves).

Since there aren't many people there, flights and hotels are easier to find and cheaper (see below). Also, tawaf is a lot more fun when there aren't so many people there.

For people from the US and UK, the "peak season" for Umrah starts in December, during the holidays. Most of the time, this is because they don't need to take as much time off.

This also means that sometimes hotels and flights from the U.S., the UK, and continental Europe will cost a lot more.

Also, families travelling with kids in the West in February will find it busy during Easter break and school vacations.

In general, I would say to avoid travelling on big holidays when there are more people likely to be on the road.

The last ten nights of Ramadan are definitely "super-peak time." Most people want to go at this time, but they don't plan well enough ahead of time.
It's the best time to go, but it's also the most expensive and most crowded, especially if you leave late. The closer a hotel or flight is to the Haram, the more it costs.

I like to travel during Ramadan, but I've spent the last 10 nights in the same place, so I try to avoid it. This is especially true because hotels and stores are usually full.

During Ramadan, Medinah is usually a little bit quieter, so if you really want to go there, you might want to stay there for the last 10 nights.
