Choosing a travel agent and booking your Hajj travel will be one of the most important decisions you make and will have a major impact on your Hajj experience. There are a wide range of Hajj travel agents with many different deals available at costs that can vary considerably. Some offer a ‘five star’ service which some will say goes against the spirit of the Hajj in which everyone is supposed to be equal, and no one is more important than another. Sadly, there are also travel agents who promise ‘four star’ accommodation but when you arrive, you find it is not even one star. Then there are travel agents who are completely fraudulent, take your money and disappear. For many this seems unbelievable especially when talking about Hajj. Sadly, fraudsters exist and exploit the vulnerable pilgrims who are more likely to be trusting at a time of heightened spirituality themselves.
