No, you'll find a much smaller range of glass hamster cages for sale compared to other hamster cage types.
Yes, you should expect to pay quite a bit more. For a glass hamster cage at the cheaper end of the market prices start at around £70. At this price range you'll get a standard glass aquarium style tank with a lid.
The more expensive models start in the region of £80 and go up to £150 plus. These models often combine a glass hamster cage on the bottom with a wire hamster cage on top and can be much larger than plastic or wire hamster cages.
You can see some of the more popular glass hamster cages in the list below. These glass cages are all for sale online in the UK.
