Our guidelines for Forum posts

We value your contributions and encourage you to interact with your fellow travelers! We also want to make sure that TripAdvisor is a safe and trustworthy source for travel advice and information. To help us with this goal, we ask that you abide by TripAdvisor’s Content Policy and the following rules for forum posts:

 

Original

Attempts to impersonate other members or TripAdvisor Staff, or any reproduction of private correspondence with TripAdvisor Staff may be removed.

Non-Commercial

TripAdvisor forums are for travelers to exchange advice, not for advertising a service or business. Posting in exchange for gifts, services, money, or any other benefit is prohibited. We reserve the right to reject specific content for any reason. External links that are not relevant to the topic or are purely promotional may be removed.

Spam, requests for participation in surveys or similar solicitations, and coordinating the exchange of money (including real estate purchases, rentals, cost-sharing, resale of rooms or tickets, etc.) are not allowed. Owners and agents of owners should NOT share recommendations or experiences with direct competitors, even when relaying a genuine experience. If you suspect a post is fraudulent, please use the Help Center to submit your report.

You may participate in discussions related to a business you are affiliated with (or a competitor), but only if you clearly disclose that affiliation.

Easy to Read

Help other travelers get the most of your post by using the language of the forum you are posting on. Any content that is posted multiple times will be removed, so please post once in the appropriate forum.
