Rental Days Australia (ADL) - Days vs 24 hours

I checked online the rates for a Sixt rental from ADL airport in April (06. to 09. April). Somehow it will show me 4 rental days and calculate as well 4 rental days despite of only 72 hours (=3 rental days) with pick-up/drop-off 09:30AM to 09:30AM.

I called the call center however they are not very helpful and just refer to the system. Do I misunderstand something or see it weongly? Anyway encounter the same issue or is it somehow a system glitch? Checked a rental as comparison in Miami and its appear correctly with 3 days. It seems Sixt ADL count days (by date) vs 24 hours. Never heard of this for car rental or is this possible?

It may be due to daylight savings time which ends on April 7th 2024 by moving he clocks backward one hour at 3AM. Try reducing your rental by one hour and see what happens.

That's it! Thank you so much for this quick and useful response. I wish the contact centre could advise me the same from the beginning.
