in a pickle over debit or credit card

please help someone who knows about banking.when paying for flights today the only options to pay were mastercard, visa or american express.i only have a hsbc maestro debit card which was no good but my girlfreind has a visa debit card so we used that the website told us there is a prob with the transaction and while its sorted the tickets are held for 2 days.the thing is she has no money in that account is it not like a credit card what she has? we thought that cos it was a visa it would be ok for now then transfer funds into the account in few days,sry its so long. any help appreciated

transfer funds into her account from yours ...its instant

sounds like its being checked....

debit card is an instant account withdrawal.......

credit card payments are an agreed overdraft on a card

best way is to draw the cash out from your account and go pay the cash in to her account that way it is available right away on her account
