This is called "the sin of omission."  Pretty sure when we mention the many sins and transgressions we have made during Yom Kippur tefilot, that's on the list.

Also, they have told you a specific price that must be paid, upon asking if it's okay to extend another week (same amount as first week).  You have been informed that your action of extending the rental by one week is acceptable based upon the consideration that you will pay the original price again at the end of the extension.

You have entered into an agreement and broken your word.

Right, so when I ask them how much I owe?  I've asked this twice.
Funny that on this forum all some people find problematic is my story.

But why the need to ask what you owe?  You were already told what you owe!

And there are other problematic actions on this forum, to some of which I've also replied -- I'm certainly not singling you out.

Just wondering at what point does stupid become illegal.
It's a completely legit question.
Maybe I returned late, or early, or they found a scratch on the car.

But the problem here lies in the fact that you're not actually asking the question for those reasons, you are not asking in tom lev.

You mean I have to have more pure kavonos when paying?
Maybe I should be a dumb American and ask if I'm allowed to hand over big tips to everyone at the rental agency?

I haven't yet developed an opinion on this but to all the naysayers, how is it different than returning a car after dark to hide a scratch or not mentioning you busted a tire and this is the spare....? Would you proactively bring that up as well?

Why not ask a posek and report back?

I asked my rabbi.
He said, as long as you don't put a stumble for them to make a mistake.
Meaning, if you hide some grocery shopping on top of another, it's a problem.
If you notice that lady x at the supermarket charges constantly too cheap for product x, it is no problem to do a repeat buy by lady x.
