How It Works

Making Student Reviews Social
A social feed of students adding travel recommendations in cities around the world.

Add Your Favorite Places
Easily keep track of your recommendations from past trips and share your favorite restaurants, bars, and more with your peers.

See Only Student Opinion
Browse recommendations and reviews from only students, rather than from a random mix of every demographic.

How It Works

Rankings Based on Compiled Favorites
Our platform compiles student reviews and favorites into rankings in every city to help students easily find the best spots.

No More 5 Star Review Format
The average ranking on 5 star review sites is 4.3 stars, and 68% of reviews are between 4 and 5 stars. We’re here to change that. 

Search Any City
Most of our student content has been in Europe, but our goal is to be the ultimate student review platform, with rankings + reviews worldwide.

How It Works

Join Groups  
Students can join groups based on specific travel interests: such as “Instagram-Worthy Food 📲,” “Late Night Eats 🍖😜,” or “Parents in Town /💰Pricey💰.” 

Create Your Own Groups
Exclusively find recommendations among peers who share your interests. Make a group for just Hipster students, for History Lovers, or for your school + club. 

Rankings Within Each Group
Current review platforms are too broad to be helpful: Rayka lets users find recommendations from likeminded people around more focused interests. 

How It Works

Student Travel Discounts, Articles and More
We know from firsthand experience that students make many decisions on where to go based on price: our platform organizes discounts and resources all in one place.

Student Travel Resources
There are a wide variety of blogs and websites that help student travelers. Rayka combs through these resources to update the best articles directly onto the app.

Alerts and Notifications 
Students can now receive alerts for relevant posts in their groups, and there are more options to come!

How It Works

Add Your Own Favorite Places
Travel should be social. We’re on the road to becoming the “Untappd for Student Travel” to let students easily share favorites with their peers.

How It Works

Grow Your Profile as You Travel 
Rayka serves as your personal travel journal, recording where you’ve been, what you liked, and where you need to go!
