WRONG. 0) You want to travel instantly in the four-dimensional space-time-continuum. Traveling in time while remaining at the same spot would let you discover about the speed of the earth in space and about what happens if it`s not close enough to stand upon. In other words: You`d most likely end up in empty space.

1) The only kind of universe where the time of time-travelling does not matter is a record-like universe: If you travel back 2 minutes, it`s like being in a movie and the user just rewinded these 2 minutes. You won`t even know it happened - except if you`re Deadpool.

2) Just to prove (1), think about Dr. Who where he exactly times his time-travel to trap the weeping angles.

@nubereight Possibly, however for us to be aware of the people in the future`s ability to time travel there would need to be a future in the first place. It is possible that our present is the farthest point in time, that there is no "future" besides a hypothetical one.

- And that time is now! Or later!
