This might clarify the situation

Hi Butwhy, I wrote an article about this last month and specifically contacted Qantas for clarification on some of its chauffeur drive rules.
Anyway, the clause Stuart Jackson posted is right - there's no chauffeur drive if the domestic flight is separate from the eligible international flight.And even if they were in the same booking, your transit in Sydney must be between 6-24 hours for you to be eligible for a chauffeur in Melbourne. No idea why, and Qantas weren't able to explain the rule to me either.
You might be able to convince someone at Qantas to do it for you, but official that's how the rules stand.

Separate tickets, no go. And no-one at QF will be able to override the system to book it.
Thought so :( thanks all for replying
Oh another thought, my dad needs to get to and from Sydney airport at the same time (same trip, different flight/airline). Any chance I could use my chauffeur drive for him, even though I’m not with him? Do they require ID for the person they pick up? Again I’m guessing not!

You could use it to get yourself from the domestic terminal in Sydney to the international terminal. I did this once when landing VA domestic, leaving EK international.

I think you can definitely use it for your dad, they do not check ID. They may call you (your number) listed on the booking or provide another number (your dad) when they arrive, and he comes along and gets in. The chauffeur company would not care as long as the passenger complies with baggage and time etc.

Hi, a related question, If you are travelling from Singapore Business with QF (first time) are you eligible to get a chauffeur to drive you home. Melbourne. Can you book this through the app or do you have to ring QF CS to do so?
Thanks all! I probably won't take the risk. It just seems such a waste
