Private messaging is a great way to start a one-on-one conversation with another member.
To send a private message to a member if you are looking at his/her review:
- Click the member's screen name next to the review.
- In the window that appears, click the Send a message link.
- Type your message and the verification text in the appropriate fields, and click the Send Message button.
You can also send someone a private message from his/her profile page. Just click the Send Message link on the left-hand side of the page.
Note: Private messaging is enabled automatically when you create a TripAdvisor account. If you don't see Send Message on the profile page, the member has disabled the messaging feature.
