Who is eligible to travel?

According to the Guardian, the British government are proposing a massive collecting and storing of personal data about travellers to be adopted as EU legislation:

Passengers travelling between EU countries or taking domestic flights would have to hand over a mass of personal information, including their mobile phone numbers and credit card details, as part of a new package of security measures being demanded by the British government. The data would be stored for 13 years and used to “profile” suspects.

The British government also want the same system to be applied to sea and air travel within EU.

Personally, I would not mind but that is mainly because I have neither a credit card nor a cell phone. Would I still be eligible to travel?
