How do I send a private message?

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:

  1. Click the member's screen name next to the review.
  2. In the window that appears, click the Send a message link.
  3. 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.
