Firstly, what is the difference between ATOL and ABTA?!
I'm looking to book a holiday with the bf this summer, and we have found identical holidays, the first with Thomas Cook and the second with IceLolly.com and Complete Travel. IceLolly and Complete are about £50 per person cheaper, but IceLolly is only ABTA protected (not ATOL) and Complete is ATOL protected (but not ABTA).
Does this mean I am covered by both ATOL and ABTA if I book with the two in conjunction? Am I putting our holiday or money at risk by booking through IceLolly/Complete rather than Thomas Cook (protected by both)
I'd really appreciate some help!
... and the ones that won't
