AKICOLJ/DW - trekking poles

In a fortnight (hurray!) I shall be going on a holiday involving walking with lots of steep descents, including steps. Walking/trekking poles are advised, but I've never used them. Other than "make sure they do in fact fit in your suitcase" has anyone any experience or advice on them? I feel it might be time to get a pair, but they are very expensive - a lot more so than my skiing poles, which involve more metal and have to stand up to rather more forceful use than a glorified walking stick.

How did it come to be ten to eleven? I need to get up and get on with things.
