Depends on many factors. How big/bad are the holes? What type of riding do you do? How much $$ do you have spare?

If the holes are neat and not near one another, you use the bike for commuting and don't go fanging; you'd likely get away with a plug/patch.

Otherwise get a new one.

If you do patch it then take it to a pro, dont use one of those do it yourself kits. Then check the air before every ride and maybe even during if your on a long ride after you get the patch, once you are sure its a good seal then you can be more assured.
