About ETA Travel
ETA Travel was founded in 1998 by Jeffrey Erlbaum, an attorney who found he enjoyed planning his business travel more than practicing law. Since then ETA has managed travel for companies including Davids Bridal, Tailored Brands (Mens Wearhouse, Jos. A Bank, K&G), Independence Blue Cross and Piasecki Aircraft. In addition, Jeff’s legal background has enabled ETA to assist his former firm, Barrack Rodos and Bacine as well as other law firms in planning their travel.
ETA’s team includes experienced vacation planners, whether you are looking for a quick weekend getaway or the trip of a lifetime. Our affiliation with the Ensemble Leisure Group gives us access to extraordinary vacation experiences that travelers could rarely get on their own.
Jeff was born and raised in Philadelphia. He graduated from Middlebury College in Vermont and received his Law Degree at Tulane University. During his time in college he spent a semester at the University of East Anglia in Norwich UK and his Junior year in Paris. Upon completion of his law degree he practiced law in Vermont for two years, before moving back to Philadelphia to work for a corporate law firm.
While running a travel agency is a 24/7 job, Jeff has been fortunate to have the opportunity to travel to many destinations all over the world. His favorites include Belgium, France, Israel, Iceland, Australia, Hong Kong, Montreal and French Polynesia. Jeff speaks French fluently and some Italian.
Jeff resides in Lafayette Hill Pennsylvania with his wife, Sara, kids Hannah and Noah and three Australian Shepherds. He is an avid fan of the Philadelphia Flyers and Norwich City Football Club.
