According to sources from the Algerian religious affairs ministry, the cost of the Omra and Hadj or big pilgrimage to the holy places of Islam in Saudi Arabia will witness a steady hike for the year 2008.

The same sources explained that this price rise was the result of big renovation works undertaken by Saudi authorities around the holy city of Mecca with the aim of further expanding the places of worship used by millions of pilgrims each year.

It should be noted that the cost of a Omra to the holy places of Islam currently averages the sum of 105.000 dinars.

70% of this financial amount should be earmarked for the purchase of a flight ticket which exceeds 70.000 dinars in addition to other expenses linked to board and lodging in Mecca and Medina .

In the words of a Manager of a specialized travel agency based in Algiers, these prices are likely to witness a 30% increase for the 2008 pilgrimage season.
