    As Sander has said, or you can say in a friendly way, "After you." Nov 17, 2015 at 20:34
  • I would say "Sorry I am in your way." even if I am not it is polite.

  • "No problem." (US) Where is this occurring? If someone did say, "excuse me, side please," that doesn't sound American or British to me.

"Go ahead", which was suggested in the comments, is a fine response.

Usually, I would just say "Oops, sorry" to indicate that I was unaware that I blocking someone's way.

  • Thanks all for your cordial cooperation. In addition may i say "follow you"? Nov 18, 2015 at 5:42
  • "Follow you" sounds like you're expecting to be led somewhere, or you're stalking someone. Instead, say "After you" to mean that you want the other person to pass first. Nov 18, 2015 at 5:45
