Those going to the EU won't have to pay UK excise duties on cigarettes and alcohol in a no-deal scenario, Britain's Treasury said, adding that a bottle of wine bought at London's Heathrow airport could be up to 2.23 pounds cheaper.

"As we prepare to leave the EU, I'm pleased to be able to back British travellers," finance minister Sajid Javid said in a statement.

"We want people to enjoy their hard-earned holidays and this decision will help holidaymakers' cash go that little bit further."

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has vowed to take Britain out of the EU with or without a deal on October 31.
