asalam alykom everyone

just want to share my experience in umrah if this will help some other brothers . taxi from Jeddah to medina cost around 400 SAR and if just one person is good to fly because sometimes flights in advance booking cost only 50 £ ( from international terminal which south to north terminal where saudia airline fly will cost you 50 SAR and its around 17 KM ) .taxi from Jeddah to macca cost me 100 SAR with not licenced taxi and with other lisenced taxi will cost you around 150-180 SAR depends on your negotiation skills . taxi from madinah airport to Haram cost 40 SAR if you want to share with others if you don't want to cost 60-80 SAR . on the way back from Haram to madinah airport cost 50 SAR . from alharam mecca to Ghar Hira cost 15 SAR and if you want to visit is good after fajr and take good sport shoes with you ,plenty water .use toilette in advance .taxi from mecca to Jaddah cost 130 SAR and its one hour 20 minutes . taxi From Mecca to Massjid Aicha cost 50 SAR return . there are free taxis takes from masjid nabawi to mals in madinah and you can walk overthere to masjid Quba . if you planning shooping you can do in madinah things are very cheap compare to Mecca . there is one big market behind haram in madin open every day big market and cheap . stay in hotel which near by Haram because this wil help you a lot especially in Mecca .

Traveling with family and specially in Ihram for UMRAH is always challenging. Coming out of Jeddah airport and then trying to find a taxi and the negotiations...always a hassle. This time booked using WhatsAPP with Umrah Taxi and had a good experience. The designated driver was in communication over whatsAPP a day earlier and was waiting to receive us at arrivals. Took hardly 1 hr to reach Masjid Al-Haram in Makkah. They have booth Sedan and SUV depending on your choice and size. Car Cleanliness could be improved.

you will find many taxis around the road and its easy to have them but high level of bargain is required. arab taxi drivers are very hard and difficult to deal with, indian pak and bangla taxi drivers are kool

Used Umrah Taxi service that was reviewed on TripAdvisor.
We needed a reliable and permitted transport to pick us up from the HAJJ Terminal to our hotel in Makkah city (abt 1.5hrs). We had learnt that not all public transport are allowed to pick up passengers from this HAJJ Terminal, only approved travel agent type buses and some private transport. Umrah Taxi service said that their booked taxis are allowed to pick up passengers from the HAJJ Terminal. We had communicated with Umrah Taxi Service via WhatsApp one week before our arrival in Jeddah to do our Umrah. Very prompt and clear replies from the company. Confirmation number and the assigned driver's name as well as his mobile number was conveyed to us a few days before our due arrival in Jeddah. Do WhatsApp them a few days before you are due to arrive in Jeddah and also on the day itself before you depart to double check if there are any changes to your booking.
When we arrived at the HAJJ Terminal at Jeddah Airport, we initially couldn't locate our driver even though we called the assigned number that was given. We then sent a WhatsApp message to the mobile number of their office whom we had been coordinating with from the very beginning and they promptly informed us that there has been a change of Driver. He was waiting for us at pillar number 7 along the kerbside at the HAJJ Terminal. Our advice is when you use Umrah Taxi Service to pick you from the HAJJ Terminal, always double check with the company about your booking and if there are any changes to the driver assigned PLUS agree on a location eg Pillar number 7, where the assigned taxi & Driver will be waiting. Some drivers do not speak English. The taxi that we used was a 7 seater for just the 2 of us, very comfortable and clean. The driver did not speed too much...even stopped for some tea before reaching Makkah! Pleasant journey from HAJJ Terminal to Makkah City. The amount paid was agreed in the initial communication when booked via WhatsApp and the driver stuck to that amount....no extra charges. We were happy with the service given the challenges of finding transport link esp from HAJJ Terminal in Jeddah. Will definitely consider using Umrah Taxi Service for our next trip.
