If you book airport parking in the UK, the charge period runs from the midnight before the drop-off time to the midnight following the pick-up time (so that the first and last days are a full 24 hours).

So parking for 24 hours from 2pm one day to 2pm the next, you are charged for 48 hours.

That suggests you will also be charged for two full days for the two minutes' parking between 23:59 and 00:01, but I haven't tried it to see one happens.

Agree with the messiness of dealing with months, but I think it's one of those quirks that make life more interesting, like imperial measure. I don't think we really want metric applied to time and to dates. (10-day weeks? I don't think so.)
