We are IATA accredited; meaning we can issue tickets directly and not have to purchase from others.
We are ATOL protected, giving financial security to our customers.
Our buying power in the Umrah and Hajj market is significant which means we can buy cheap and thus sell cheaper.
We are present in USA, UK and Bangladesh.
We have the latest technology to generate prices for Umrah and air tickets. You and your customers have access to prices anytime you want.

Ahmed Tours is a brand that resonates good service, good customer care and very competitive prices.

During Umrah season
you should get 100 enquiries every month for the whole season
lasting 7 months. Typical conversion rate will be 30%. We at head
office get between 200-300 enquiries each week.
30% of 100 enquiries is 30 customers. Profit margin for each Umrah package sold is £60, meaning £1800 each month and for the season £12,600. Average Umrah package cost should be £800, meaning turnover will be £168,000.
For selling one Hajj package you will get £200 commission. As you will be Ahmed Tours, it should not be difficult for you to sell 50 Hajj packages, meaning profit of £10,000. This will be the profit for one month of Hajj. The revenue will be £3200 @ 50 package = £160,000.
In addition to this there will be further income generated by selling of worldwide air tickets and hotels.
All in all our franchise offers an avenue of income that is stable and worthwhile.
One off charge of
£10,000. There are no monthly fees thereafter. There are no
commissions on revenue either.
£200 each month we need for marketing specifically for your territory.
So after your franchise fees, your financial commitment with us will be yearly £2400.00
Remember the Hajj and Umrah market is a niche market. Customers are looking for accredited agents, especially those who are Saudi Hajj Ministry approved, ATOL protected and IATA accredited. Through our franchise you immediately have all these protections for your customers and a reputation that took us many years to build. If this is the field you are interested in, then this is the best formula for you. Opening under your name or taking on a name that is not approved will not attract customers.
