Sara International Travel: Hajj Accommodations Improve as Wealth Rises
Increasing wealth in Islamic countries has sparked a demand for higher quality travel accommodations. Sara International Travel secures these accommodations, which include luxury hotel and airline bookings for its clients attending the Hajj.
NEW YORK, NY, July 30, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Today's pilgrimages are much more comfortable and convenient than those undergone by Muslim pilgrims of just a decade or so ago. Bloomberg reports that rising wealth in Islamic countries has sparked the development of improved travel accommodations. Sara International Travel, a company that offers Hajj and Umrah travel packages to pilgrims in the United States, Canada, South America, and the Caribbean, understands that keeping up with the evolving standard of this industry is imperative in providing clients with the travel experience they expect.
"Rising wealth in Islamic countries form the Persian Gulf to Indonesia is boosting demand for a higher standard of accommodation as about 3 million pilgrims prepare to descend on Mecca for the annual Hajj in October," asserts the Bloomberg article.
The "higher standard of accommodation" includes significantly increased hotel investment throughout Saudi Arabia. In fact, InterContinental Hotels Group Plc, Hyatt Hotels Corp., and Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide Inc. have all contributed to the efforts to improve the travel options provided to pilgrims. Hilton Worldwide Inc. also plans to enhance its offerings in this region.
The article reports that religious visits are still the strongest drivers of tourism in Saudi Arabia. Hajj and Umrah pilgrimages, in addition to trips to Medina, brought in 10.6 million visitors during 2011. Considering that total tourist activity numbered 15.4 million visitors, it is safe to say that these religious journeys are of utmost importance to the Saudi economy.
Sara International Travel believes that this is the best reason to boost the quality of accommodations, and number of options, available to pilgrims during Hajj and Umrah. The company provides travelers with all-inclusive packages, ensuring that they can focus on the spiritual growth of the pilgrimage without having to worry about the safety or booking of their accommodations. From airfare to transportation to hotel rooms, all aspects of the trip are booked in advance.

Sara International Travel understands that its clients are looking for superior service, both before and during their journey. Through all-inclusive travel packages and the heightened quality of today's hotel accommodations in Saudi Arabia, Sara International Travel is able to provide just that.
Sara International Travel offers Hajj and Umrah travel packages. Through these accommodations, the company makes it easier for individuals of Muslim faith to attend these important pilgrimages.
