Detailed instructions of how to close a TripAdvisor account

1. Sign in to your TripAdvisor account one last time

Go to and sign in to your account.

2. Access your TripAdvisor account settings

Click on your name, and then click Account Info from the drop-down menu.

3. Locate the option to close your account

Scroll to the bottom of the page and click Close Your Account.

4. Indicate why you are leaving TripAdvisor, and contact their customer service if you wish

You will now be given options regarding why you wish to close your TripAdvisor account. Click Change Subscriptions (to emails), Remove Your Review, Disconnect Facebook (account), or Disconnect Google (account) if you wish to do any of these things instead of deactivating your account. If you don't, then click on one of the bubbles on the left side of the screen to indicate why you are leaving TripAdvisor.

You can also choose “I Have Other Reasons for Leaving” if none of these apply. If you do, you can click in the box below it (highlighted here) and type in a message to TripAdvisor’s customer service team. Then scroll down for the final step.

5. Confirm that you would like to permanently close your TripAdvisor account

Click in the box labelled "Please Enter Your Password to Finish Closing Your Account" and enter your TripAdvisor account password. Then click the Close My Account button to the right of your password.

And that’s how you cancel your TripAdvisor account!
