Fazal Bahardeen, CEO of HalalTrip, said: “It is widely recognised that the Muslim travel market is becoming increasingly important and lucrative to the travel sector and the launch of these exclusive worldwide tour packages is a reflection on this,” he said.
“The Muslim consumers are looking to explore new destinations and experience different cultures across the world which is why we have launched these tailored packages that cater for every occasion together with satisfying needs such as Halal food and prayer facilities.
“Whether it is experiencing Great White Sharks in South Africa, taking in some culture and history in Spain or Turkey, honeymooning in Maldives or shopping in Dubai, we have something for every need.”
The packages not only include tours to the world’s most popular destinations such as Dubai, Istanbul, Kuala Lumpur, Cape Town, Maldives, and London but also cities such as Tbilisi, Dubrovnik and Kunming. HalalTrip plans to add more destinations in the coming months.
