We've once had someone leave somewhere at (fictional times) 14:30 and arriving at 13:45, he had driven for fifteen minutes, but went into another timezone.
So what do you do?
Correct the departure time for the arrival time zone, correct the arrival time for the departure time zone or show time zone in this user's overview for that one time every few years he takes his car on vacation (this actually happened once for thousands of users using the system for three years)?
I think we went for an asterisk with some text on hover that explained the user crossed a time zone.
Obviously, you need time zone information here.

However, what if a user changed something at home at 11:00 and then flies over to America for vacation, but remembers they should change something else.
Should they see 11:00 for the previous change, or 05:00, as that is their local time now?
If it's 11:00, which would be my preference, you might as well just store 11:00, as it's just always that, 11:00.
It's a lot easier for fetching and filtering the data if times are WYSIWYG...
