Bus Trip Quiz Puzzle

There is much excitement in the Jolly Quizmaster, as the landlord has organised a bus trip to visit another pub in the next village. Later in the year the other pub will organise a reciprocal trip, and so both pubs will benefit.

The landlord told us that he had originally got 30 people signed up, and had booked a 30-seater coach for the journey. However demand had been so high that five more people wanted to go, and luckily the coach company had a 35-seater available. He had just finished his phone call changing the arrangements.

"Well, that's a stroke of luck" he said, "I've managed to change the booking, and it is only going to cost an extra £10."

We agreed that it was indeed lucky that the 35-seater was available, but the extra £10 was not so lucky.

"But no" he said, "The cost per head has dropped by £1. Everyone will be paying less money to go".

On this basis, how much is each passenger now going to have to pay?
