Do I need to buy a domestic connection ticket? Which airports can I depart from?

The package price includes departure from JFK in New York City, Toronto in Candad & London in UK. However, you may leave from any departure city from which Dar El Salam can issue a ticket.

If you do not live in a departure city from which the selected airline flies, then you must purchase the domestic ticket for an extra fee from your home city to the departure city of your choice. Please contact Dar El Salam for more details.

When will you provide more details about airlines?

Airline details are still being finalized. We are committed to flying on reputable airlines, with reasonable transit times, and will avoid any overnight stays while in transit.

When does the “early bird” discount end?

Deposits should be received by Dar El Salam Travel by December 17, 2016 to take advantage of “early bird” pricing and discounts. Early bird discounts are also based on availability.

What if I change my mind after I’ve paid my deposit?

All deposits are non-refundable. Deposits are calculated by each person traveling in your family. Cancellation of deposits will also be by person. Anyone that wishes to change their travel plans after paying their deposits will not be able to receive a cash refund. However, the airline may offer a credit equivalent to the deposit for future flights on that airline within 12 months.

What will be the role of the Haramain Staff and Scholars and those involved with the group?

The two scholars will be in charge of all religious affairs for the group. They will accompany the group and will also provide regular lectures and training about Umrah. Additionally, there will be plenty of time to meet with them during the duration of the trip. Group leaders from Haramain will handle administrative issues while travel and logistical issues will be handled through Dar El Salam Travels.

How is Umrah different from Hajj?

Umrah documents will be provided by Haramain before and during the trip. Hajj has many different rituals and can only be made during a specific time of the year. Umrah can be performed anytime of the year and only takes a few hours.
