What is private messaging?

Private messaging is a TripAdvisor feature that allows members to connect one-on-one so that they can ask questions and share travel advice. Don't be shy about messaging someone for more information about a review, photo or video they posted – if they shared their experience, they probably want to help!

You can find all private messages you send and receive in the Messages section of your profile.
