Question about refund if returning car early?

Having a hard time getting someone on the phone about this.

Have a car rental coming up in two weeks and there's a chance that the dates might get cut short for work.

What I'm wondering is, will Sixt credit me if I book out for 8 days and potentially return it three days prior?

I've had this situation with Enterprise earlier this year where I had to amend reservation and return early, and they credited me the day's fare difference.

I'm wondering if Sixt does the same -- would rather lock in my Platinum price now than wait any longer.

Yes. You will only be billed for the days you had the vehicle for.

Does this apply to both prepaid and / or pay at airport?

Finally got someone on the phone, but they said I would only get fare difference refund on the non-refundable booking. (She might have been confused).

What happened here? In the past when I returned a car early to Sixt, they did not refund the monies. It was very weird and unlike any other major car rental company I've used. It was just 1x though, so perhaps it was a one off

It's a little weird.. there have been times I had to keep the car for a few hours just to trigger a weekly rate which was cheaper than the five-day rate.
