Halal skiing & cruise trips

“So many of our customers are asking for them (halal cruises). At the moment, we work with cruise liners in Turkey that travel around the islands. On board the ships there is no alcohol, all the food is halal, the pools are segregated and the entertainment is very family orientated.

“The average Muslim traveller is becoming more discerning and adventurous. We’ve seen rising demand for halal ski resorts… in Turkey, Bosnia and Switzerland,”. - Ufuk Seqcin, chief marketing officer (CMO) at online travel site HalalBooking

In 2017, there were an estimated 131 million Muslim visitor arrivals globally – up from 121 million in 2016 – this is forecasted to grow to 156 million visitors globally by 2020, representing 10 per cent of the total global travel market.

According to the GMTI, the halal travel market is on course to reach $220 billion by 2020. It is expected to grow a further $80 billion to reach $300 billion by 2026.
