halyards rope vs wire

After 4 days out on my boat and sailing hard and long I really got to know it. My traveler line was slipping because the line is ageing. taking a closer look at all my lines I noticed that my halyards will need replacing soon too.
Are wire halyard better than straight rope ? Are there benefits to each. My boat is older and is there a big cost factor between them ?
