Please, do a search. What is rattling? Find what it is, then shove a piece of foam in between the two surfaces

Huge issue is the number plate. Go get yourself some rubber washers/grommets/whatever and chuck them on the screw, in between the plate and the car. Put a foam strip across the bottom of the plate if it is only attached across the top.

i took about 3m x 1m of bubble wrap from work and crammed that in everywhere.... boot weighed alot more.. but stopped rattling.

Expanding foam seems a little smarter.

Expanding foam is dangerous if you're not careful. I have seen people put far too much of it inbetween sheets and it expanded to the point where it bulged the sheet metal, leaving a nice imperfection visible on the outside of the car. So if you go down the expanding foam route, just exercise a bit of common sense/caution.

I was half kidding, but yes be careful, it can be useful between panels.
