Private messaging is a great way to start a one-on-one conversation with another member. At this time, composing Private Messages is only possible for members using our desktop website.
To send a private message to a member if you are looking at their review:
- Click the member's screen name next to the review.
- In the window that appears, click their username. This takes you to their profile page.
- Click the Send Message link on the left-hand side of the page, compose your message and click the Send Message button.
You can also send someone a private message from their 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.
