To become a member, click the Sign In link at the top of most Tripadvisor pages. You have the option to continue signing in with Google, Facebook or with your email address and each process varies. Membership is free and lets you post reviews and photos, ask and answer questions in the forums, and create your own trip-planning folders.
There are three ways to create your free account:
