They have already partnered with the top 70 Travel agencies of Pakistan from Lahore, Islamabad, Rawalpindi and Karachi.

What is BookMyUmrah?

Over 8 million pilgrims perform hajj/ Umrah each year and this number is expected to skyrocket to 60 million by the end of 2020. Despite these growing demand, there was not a single online platform that deals with everything related to the pilgrimage, until BookMyUmrah came into the scene.

BookMyUmrah helps address practical challenges faced by the pilgrims. It caters to both the potential pilgrims as well as tour operators who specialize in creating Umrah, Hajj and Ziyarat travel packages. Bringing together otherwise scattered information, the website allows travelers to find affordable and appropriate packages, which include accommodation and shopping alongside travel arrangements. Pilgrims can post reviews of their experiences and share them with other pilgrims.
