British travellers have been warned to start making preparations for a no-deal Brexit scenario.
Prime Minister Theresa May is understood to be preparing to place the country on a no-deal footing.
This could involve weekly public warnings and advice bundles, The Times reports.
These releases could start as early as next week and will contain broader advice on preparing for a “disorderly Brexit”.
Hilary Benn, head of the Commons Brexit committee, said advice to British travellers would include buying health insurance to replace existing EU arrangements, such as the Ehic.
The warnings will raise the possibility of disruption at ports and airports, according to The Times.
It comes after the European Commission on Thursday (July 19) formally outlined its preparations “for all outcomes” of Brexit, including a no-deal scenario.
“Border issues”, it warns, could “severely impact” transport between the UK and the EU, while a wider transport study reiterates the importance for member states to start preparing for the UK becoming a “third country”, which could significantly impact operations.
The commission has published 10 advisory notices concerning travel and transport, ranging from aviation safety and security to sea, road and rail links, consumer protection and passenger rights.
It adds the commission’s priority is to “ensure continued connectivity of the EU network” following the UK’s withdrawal, potentially placing certain transport infrastructure outside the union.
