Travel agents and pilgrims worldwide are now able to plan and organize religious travels with Zamzam.com.
A joint venture with TBO.com, the world’s leading travel distribution technology platform, the first Online Travel Agency (OTA) platform for religious travels launched recently with a vast range of B2B services aiming to deliver an unparalleled and memorable experience to clients.
Guests of the Holy Cities of Makkah al Mukarrama and Al Madinah al Munawwarah are now able to complete their spiritual journey with confidence and ease of mind thanks to curated travel itineraries suited to their requirements.
Highlighting the role of an OTA platform in transforming the religious tourism industry, Omar Akbar, the CEO of Zamzam.com, said, “Inspired by purpose and our core values of integrity, reliability, and transparency, we have created Zamzam.com to simplify the process of Umrah booking for everyone. Our vision behind the OTA platform is to assist travelers to search, plan, and book every service they need via a single platform.”
“More travelers than ever are looking for unique experiences and religious travelers are no different. To provide a peaceful spiritual experience, we collaborated with many partners, agencies and suppliers around the world to strengthen our position in the hope of introducing more personalized services and B2C packages in the future”, he added further.
The booking search engine is approved by the Saudi Ministry of Hajj and Umra, and it leverages technology with a user-friendly interface allowing users to book their Umrah trips with MAQAM – the ministry’s Global Distribution System. Hotel accommodations, transportation, transfers, online visas, meet and greet services and sightseeing tours can all be tailored to the users’ preferences.
